A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death during a fight late Tuesday in the Loop.
Heaven D. Taylor, 16, was in a argument that turned physical with a female suspect who pulled out a knife in the first block of West Van Buren Street around 11:30 p.m., Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Police were called to the scene for a “large group fighting” and found Taylor lying unresponsive in the street and a trail of blood leading to Van Buren and Federal Street, according to a police report.
Taylor, of the city’s South Side, suffered two stab wounds to the chest and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. where she was pronounced dead at 12:05 a.m., the office said.
Officers know what happened because they spoke to a relative of the victim who provided a video of the attack. It was not clear who filmed it, police said.
The suspect ran away and was not arrested.
