12-year-old girl stabs 9-year-old brother to death
A 12-year-old in Oklahoma is in custody after she allegedly stabbed her 9-year-old brother, according to police.
The incident occurred late Friday night when the Tulsa Police Riverside Division in Oklahoma received a call at approximately 11:43 p.m. regarding a reported stabbing in the 1000 block of 64th Place South in the southern part of the city, according to a statement released by authorities.
Police said that the parent learned about the incident when she was woken up by her 12-year-old, who told her that she stabbed her brother.
The Tulsa Police Department said that once they arrived on the scene, paramedics and Tulsa firefighters were already performing CPR to the 9-year-old stabbing victim who was taken to a local hospital where he died around 2:30 a.m.
The unnamed 12-year-old suspect was subsequently taken into custody and is currently being held at the Family Center for Juvenile Justice, police said.
No charges have been filed yet, Oklahoma law states that any child under the age of 13 cannot be prosecuted as an adult for felony allegations of murder.
