Police claim that the killer was the girl’s boyfriend, and the confrontation took place on the street before the party.
The victim and the girl’s boyfriend took to the road along with two other male friends of the alleged attacker, Seven News said.
Chief Inspector Paul Tickner said the alleged attacker was invited to the party by his girlfriend, who was already there.
“Young guys, probably with some hormones running through their systems, and someone thought they had to defend their girlfriend’s rights on the spot,” he said.
“Unfortunately, it has resulted in a young boy being murdered. They shouldn’t have been carrying knives in the first place.’
The 16-year-old died at the scene, despite police and paramedics performing CPR on him.

‘My son was a good boy. He was a good boy with a lot of potential,” he said.
“He was due to start an internship in a few days, air conditioning. He will be missed.’
