Shaakira Dorsey – 16-years-old was killed after suffering a severe beating at the hands of a classmate whom she teased about her flatulence.
The fight took place in Warrensville Heights, Ohio and it was reported that there were many adults present but did nothing to stop the fight. A 911-caller said:
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,
It was only until Shaakira Dorsey’s stepfather intervened that the fight stopped. Shaakira collapsed and was rushed to the Ahuja Medical Center were she was later pronounced dead. The official cause of death has yet to be determined.
The student responsible now faces a murder charge and has her first court date Wednesday.
