McKinley says a group of girls got into a fight in the parking lot of the Speedway, leading to the stabbing. She didn’t provide exact ages for the girls involved. She says it’s unclear if the fight was planned or why the girls met at that location.

The LMPD’s Homicide Unit is investigating the stabbing due to the severity of the victim’s injuries.
