A teenage boy was stabbed to death in a bus after a "school beef chat" on social media, a court heard.
15-year-old Baptista Adjei was fatally attacked when he traveled to Stratford in east London with a group of friends on the afternoon of October 10 last year.
The attack followed an argument between students from two schools before a soccer game between rivals.
When the bus that the group was traveling on pulled up, another teenager got on with a blue latex glove and a & # 39; vicious looking & # 39; Hunting knives on board, old Bailey heard.
Baptista Adjei, 15, (pictured left with his mother Josephine Frimpong) was stabbed and killed on October 10 last year while on a bus with a group of friends
The youth attacked Baptista with the 10-inch blade, stabbed him twice in the chest, and pierced his lungs and heart, as the jury heard.
The boy was fatally injured, got off the bus and ran away, but collapsed on the floor near a McDonald's restaurant.
Another boy was stabbed in the arm and leg, but survived, the jury was told.
He later told the police that the stabbing had followed a joke between schools on Snapchat a few weeks earlier.
He said the "school beef chat" started off fun before a soccer game.
The jury heard that Adjei was stabbed after an online dispute between two schools broke out before a soccer game between schools
A youth had sent a message to Baptista saying, "If you have no bodies on your blade, leave the group chat," the court heard.
Baptista reportedly replied: & # 39; shut up. You will be the first. & # 39;
The youth who allegedly sent the message to Baptista is one of two 16-year-olds from East London who are on trial for his murder.
Prosecutor Crispin Aylett QC said the teenager who swung the knife admitted Baptista's homicide and the boy's illegal wounding.
But he has deliberately denied the more serious alternative charges of murder and wounding.
Mr. Aylett said, "The prosecution suggests stabbing Baptista twice in the chest to a depth of five inches and piercing the lungs and heart separately, which you think they (the accused) must have intended at least To do really serious harm to Baptista.
"The knife used had a blade that was 25 centimeters long."
The second defendant accepted that he was on the bus after being intercepted with his Oyster card and caught on video surveillance, the court heard.

Mr. Aylett said the case against him was that he had given the other defendant a clue and knew what he would do.
He added, "In other words, they were there together."
The second defendant denies all charges.
