A 15-YEAR-old boy stabbed to death just yards from his home was an “an­gel”, his devastated fam­ily said.

Kee­lan Wil­son was with a friend in Wolver­hamp­ton when he was at­tacked at 11pm on Tues­day.

He was taken to hos­pi­tal, but shortly af­ter ar­riv­ing he was con­firmed dead.

His grand­fa­ther, Ge­orge El­litts, said: “To me, he was an an­gel.

“They were all sup­posed to be go­ing on hol­i­day a week to­mor­row, to Egypt.

“He’s lived with me all my life.” The teen loved cars and had just en­rolled at col­lege in Birm­ing­ham.

He once raised hun­dreds of pounds for Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal in a spon­sored hair-cut.

Neigh­bour Lily Thomp­son, 81, said: “It’s such a shame. Kee­lan was such a nice, smiley lad.”

Po­lice said a “group” had been in­volved but no ar­rests have been made.

Det Ch Insp Chris Mal­lett said: “A young boy has trag­i­cally been killed and we are de­ter­mined to find out why this has hap­pened.”
