One woman is dead after being stabbed in a brawl in a Fort Worth apartment parking lot.

Neighbors at the Bellagio Apartments in the 3000 block of Las Vegas Trail said they woke up to the sound of screaming as dozens of people fought in the parking lot of an apartment complex early Friday morning.

Fort Worth police said an 18-year-old woman was stabbed by another woman multiple times in the neck, chest, and leg during the fight. She was transported to John Peter Smith hospital were she later died.

Police took one female suspect into custody at the scene, but are looking for a second female in connection with the attack after witnesses told police two different people were involved.

Charles Ramirez, with the Fort Worth Police Department, described the scene as "confusing" and said police interviewed more than 15 witnesses to the incident.

Ramirez said the victim and the suspect in custody were believed to be fighting over both a boyfriend and an assault that occured on Thursday. Ramirez described the relationship between the victim and one suspect as having "ongoing issues."

Neighbors said they were shocked by the scene due to the age and gender of those allegedly involved.

“Cause it’s girls. You don’t expect to see stuff like that from girls, you know what I’m saying?" apartment resident Victor Thompson said. "Maybe fighting, but not stabbing. And they’re so young too.”

Homicide detectives plan to interview the female suspect in custody as well as any other witnesses that come forward.
