Four young girls have been arrested for stabbing a 15-year-old girl inside a Walmart in Louisiana.
According to police, a 14-year-old girl, two 13-year-olds, and a 12-year-old were taken into custody after a 15-year-old girl tragically died at a hospital.
The attackers allegedly stole a knife from the kitchen aisle moments before the attack.
Video of the incident showed one of the girls holding a knife as the 15-year-old approached her.
Clips shared on social media showed the young girls fleeing the scene in a getaway car as one of them shouted: “Just stabbed somebody at Walmart.
“We just stabbed that b**** in her heart. We don’t give a f***!”
Authorities believe the fight may have started at a nearby movie theater.
One of the attackers was arrested on a second-degree murder charge. All four of them have been booked in the juvenile detention center.
“They stole knives from the actual store where they were at. It is really heart-breaking when we have to come in and pick up the pieces because so many families are damaged after this,” Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said in a press conference.
“Our whole case unfolded before us through live Facebook and Instagram… we have videos of everything that took place and it’s very disturbing.
“The whole murder was played out on (social media) so, again, there appeared to be no remorse. It was very cold to see 12, 13, 14 and 15-year-olds acting this way and we as a society can’t tolerate it. We cannot let this plague and take over our community.”
The sheriff added: “This is the third homicide in six months that we’ve had that involved juveniles that range from 11 to 16 years old. They come from all backgrounds, all races. This is just a problem that we are having with kids having access to weapons,’ he said.
‘This is not something we can police ourselves out o… I just don’t feel like this is a police matter. This is a parenting issue.”
