Authorities in Westchester County have detained a 15-year-old girl after she reportedly fatally stabbed one young girl and cut another.
The incident occurred on Saturday during a parade honoring the state title of the local high school basketball team.
Two young girls were stabbed in the melee, according to a city statement. One of the victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries, while the other, a 16-year-old girl, was “gravely injured” and died while being transported to Jacobi Medical Center.
Kayla Breonna Green, according to sources, was the victim. Her heartbroken mother shared heartbreaking photographs of her daughter in the hospital bed and at a recent Sweet 16 party on Instagram.
“They took my child from me.” They assassinated my child and then boasted about it, but I will leave all revenge to God.
I appreciate everyone who is tagging me and requesting that I republish it. Thank you very much for letting me know about it. “Please pray for me because I am not strong,” her mother posted on Instagram.
In youth court on Monday, the unnamed suspect will be charged with manslaughter, attempted assault, and assault. He or she will be arraigned on those charges.
In a statement, Mayor Shawyn Patterson Howard said, “I am shocked and absolutely enraged.” We started the day by honoring our youth’s achievements and magnificence. And we came to an end with the loss of a young life to needless and unjustified violence. “
Our community’s mental, emotional, and spiritual health, particularly that of our children, must be prioritized, and we must band together.
She concluded, “The safety and healthy development of our young people must be our shared unity as a community.” “Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and the whole Mount Vernon community.”
