12-Year-Old Girl In Custody After Fatally Stabbing 9-Year-Old Brother

Late Thursday night, officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma responded to a call about a stabbing. When they arrived to the apartment complex, paramedics were performing CPR on a 9-year-old boy. The child’s attacker was a 12-year-old girl and the victim’s sister, CNN has reported.

“Officers learned the children’s parent was upstairs asleep when the 12-year-old daughter woke the parent up and said that she had stabbed her nine-year-old brother,” the Tulsa Police Department said in a news release.

Though the victim was transported to a local hospital, and taken into surgery, he unfortunately succumbed to his wounds shortly after. The suspect has been taken into police custody and is currently being held at the Family Center for Juvenile Justice. The Tulsa Police Department Child Crisis Unit has been placed in charge of investigating the stabbing further.
