Washington D.C. — A 16-year-old kid was stabbed multiple times Monday at the Smithsonian Zoo during a traditional Easter event for African-American families.
Around 4 p.m., D.C. fire and rescue officials received several calls about a stabbing victim at the 2900 block of Connecticut Avenue, and upon arrival they found a teenage male in front of the Parkwest Apartments at 2929 Connecticut Ave., suffering from knife wounds to the chest, said D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer. The teen was taken to Children’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.
One teenager was taken into custody, police said. Mshairi Alkebular, also known as “Swiper,” was charged as an adult Tuesday with two counts of assault with intent to kill while armed.
