A brave teacher frantically performed CPR on the teenager after he had been attacked near his school gates.

But Khayri tragically died after being rushed to hospital from the school.

Floral tributes continued to be left at the scene on Friday, with candles and bottles of Yazoo milkshake also placed near the spot where he died.

Khayri's mum Marcia came to the spot where he died yesterday, knelt down on the floor and was visibly completely overcome by emotion, Good Morning Britain reported.

While his girlfriend Shyana James revealed her "heart shattered" when she heard he died and called him a "really nice boy".

Friends and classmates also paid tribute to Khayri, while his headteacher has released a statement following the tragedy.

Worried parents had also called the incident heart-breaking and shocking.

A mum-of-two, 43, added: “It makes you frightened to send your children to school. 

"You send them to school to be safe. It’s heart-breaking and shocking. What is the world coming to?”

Officers from West Yorkshire Police's Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) are continuing to investigate the death of Khayri.

And they have called for anyone with video footage from the incident to come forward.
