MIAMI, FL—Officials from the Miramar Police Department are investigating the recent stabbing of a 15-year-old girl, which took place in the parking lot of an apartment complex near Miramar High School. According to information provided by the Miami Herald, the teenage victim was stabbed after being confronted by a few fellow students—whom she had apparently gotten into a quarrel with at Miramar High earlier that day—on her way home.
Victim Kiana Henry, 15, was on her way home from school when a few female classmates approached her in the parking lot of the Village of Mallorca apartment complex– located in close proximity to Miramar High. It was there that one of the girls pulled a knife out and went on to stab Henry twice. The victim apparently agreed to settle an argument that arose between her and the girls after school was let out for the day.
According to a friend of the stabbing victim—who told reporters her name was Lakoria—, “They got into an argument [at school] about somebody talking about somebody… She stabbed my home girl. I just saw her slice her. When she sliced her, everybody just started running.” The severely injured victim was subsequently rushed to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital to be treated for her stab wounds. At last check, she was listed in serious condition at the hospital.
Tania Rues, a spokesperson for the Miramar Police Dept., told reporters that two suspects were taken into custody in connection with the violent near-school stabbing incident. Investigations into the incident are underway.
