Police and paramedics attempted to save the boy, but he died at the scene before homicide detectives were called.

The boy’s mother, at the scene Wednesday afternoon, said the couple regularly walked their pit bull in the area and knew the attacker in passing. She believes the attack was triggered by a mental episode.

Her son was walking behind her when the attack occurred.

St. Albert Public Schools issued a statement Wednesday, identifying the boy as Broden Radomske, a ninth-grade student at Lorne Akins Middle School.

“Our hearts go out to Broden’s family, friends, classmates and teachers as they struggle with this enormous loss. Our flags will also be raised in honor of Broden. We are grateful for the time you spent with us. May he rest in peace,” the statement reads.

The autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

In May last year, a mother and her daughter, Carolann Robillard, 35, and Sara Miller, 11, were killed in what police said was a random stabbing attack outside Edmonton’s Crawford Plains School .

The attacker in that case, Muorater Mashar, 33, died in hospital five days after police called to the scene shot him.
