Shaakira Dorsey (pictured), 16, was allegedly teasing a another teenage girl for passing gas before being pummeled to death, KAIT-TV reports. The young girl died shortly after the beating and her unidentified teen attacker is facing a murder charge.
The two Warrensville Heights, Ohio young teens were reportedly arguing outside an apartment complex which was spurred on by Dorsey’s chiding of her classmate over the allegedly passing gas jokes. A fight erupted between Dorsey and the other teen. According to witnesses, the unidentified girl, who was on top of Dorsey, began punching her across the face.
“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,” the caller reported.
Eventually, Dorsey’s unidentified stepfather who was on the scene separated the battling girls. After the two were pulled apart however, Dorsey began to pace back and forth on the grassy lawn of the apartment complex. Minutes after the fight, she fell face forward onto the grass.
When police officers arrived, they found an ambulance already there with paramedics trying to treat the high school junior. When officers questioned Dorsey’s stepfather he was evasive and did not mention the fight at first.
According to News Net 5, an officer stated on a police report that “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.”
Even though the teen who fought Dorsey was charged with the fatal beating, detectives are still delving into whether there were other people involved in the teen’s brutal death.
