THIS is the chilling moment a masked knifeman stalked a ‘role model’ student outside school before stabbing him to death.
CCTV footage shows Laoui Ali, 17, riding the bus from home in Birmingham on his way to butcher 16-year-old Sidali Mohamed outside the gates of the city-centre Joseph Chamberlain College.
The aspiring boxer can be seen hanging outside the school as he waits with a concealed knife.
He then puts on a mask and nonchalantly strolls past students filing their way out of class.
After a brief exchange of words he lunches forward and punches Sidali in the face.
As the two brawl on the ground, Sidali is fatally stabbed as horrified teens watch on.

A security guard can then be seen picking up the discarded knife from the ground.
Ali – who was on bail for another stabbing at the time of the attack – was found guilty of murder at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday.
The teen faces life behind bars when he is sentenced on Monday.
Sidali’s family said in a statement: “He was an amazing son, brother, cousin, nephew and a fantastic friend.
“Sidali was an ambitious young man with his whole life ahead of him.
