A 15-year-old girl was stabbed to death at a grocery store after being jumped by four other girls, and the graphic murder was captured and streamed on Instagram, MTO News has learned.
The incident occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23 at a grocery store in Lake Charles, Louisiana. According to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, a fight took place between a 15-year-old girl and four other females all between the ages of 12 and 14.
While it's not clear what started the fight, authorities confirmed to MTO News that, during the incident, the 15-year-old girl was stabbed and the victim was subsequently transported to a local area hospital where she died.

“In last night’s case, 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,” said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso at a press conference on Sunday night.
“Our whole case unfolded before us through live Facebook and Instagram … we have videos of everything that took place and it’s very disturbing,” said Mancuso. “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.”
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office said that the four females -- aged 14, two girls who are 13 and 12 -- were all booked into the juvenile detention center and one was charged with second degree murder while the other three were charged with principal to second degree murder.
Here is the video showing the alleged fight that led to the death of a 15 year old. The second video shows the aftermath, where the suspects friends say, "If she's killed her, she's dead - OH WELL."
