12-Year-Old Girl Stabs 9-Year-Old Brother To Death Police Say: According to authorities, a 12-year-old girl was detained after being accused of fatally stabbing her 9-year-old brother.
According to a statement issued by the authorities, the event happened late on Friday night when the Tulsa Police Riverside Division in Oklahoma received a call about a suspected stabbing in the 1000 block of 64th Place South in the southern area of the city at around 11:43 p.m.
The 9-year-old stabbing victim was already receiving CPR when paramedics and Tulsa firefighters arrived on the scene, according to the Tulsa Police Department.
“Officers learned the children’s parent was upstairs asleep when the 12-year-old daughter woke the parent up and said that she had stabbed her 9-year-old brother,” the Tulsa Police Department said. “The 9-year-old male victim was rushed to the hospital and taken into surgery. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries shortly after 2:30 a.m.”
Wendell Franklin, the chief of the Tulsa Police Department, was blunt in his announcement of the unfortunate killing on social media.
“All homicides are tragic, but the 2nd homicide of 2023 in Tulsa shows a definitive societal problem,” Chief Franklin said. “The question is, how does society address a child killing another child?”
The unidentified 12-year-old suspect was soon apprehended and is being held at the Family Center for Juvenile Justice, according to police.
The Tulsa Police Child Crisis Unit is in charge of the investigation even though the motive for the stabbing is now unknown.
Although no formal charges have been brought in this instance, according to Oklahoma law, any child under the age of 13 cannot be tried as an adult on felony murder charges. Keep yourself updated with all the latest news from our website Newswatchlist.com and get all the recent updates.
