A 16-year-old Ohio girl is dead after a fight that started when she made fun of another teenager for flatulence.
The other girl, also 16, now faces a murder charge. Cops haven’t released her name.
A group of adults, including the stepfather of victim Shaakira Dorsey, watched the two teens go at it last Wednesday in Warrensville Heights after Shaakira teased the other girl for passing gas, witnesses told KAIT-TV.
“At the end of my driveway, it’s some kids fighting, and it’s adults there watching,” one person told a 911 operator.
Local parent DeAndre Clemons said posts on Facebook and Twitter implied that one of the girls’ parents actually brought her to the fight, according to WEWS-TV.
The police report says a man identified as Dorsey’s step-father was with the victim and her sister when Dorsey collapsed.
Blanking-out his name, the report reads, “When I asked [blank] what Shaakira had been doing prior to talking on the lawn he became very evasive and would not provide any information. As I spoke with [blank] Shaakira’s mother [blank] arrived on scene. She had not been notified of the situation but also confirmed Shaakira had no pre existing medical conditions.”
Later the report reads, “I again spoke with [blank] about the events leading to Shaakira’s collapse. This time [blank] advised as he pulled in front of 4796 Walford Shaakira jumped from his cars back seat and ran behind an SUV … [blank] then stated Shaakira and another girl emerged from behind the SUV fighting.”
A 9-1-1 call from that night sounded, “At the end of my driveway, it’s some kids fighting, and it’s adults there watching … it’s adults, grown-ups there watching them fight.”
Dorsey’s stepfather eventually stopped the brawl. She collapsed and was rushed to a local hospital, where she died.All this over some farts?! R.I.P. Shaakira Dorsey, somebody has got to get a hold of these kids.
Medical examiners have not released a cause of death. The girl who is charged with her murder is set to make her first juvenile court appearance Wednesday.
