A 16-year-old Ohio girl is dead after a fight that started when she made fun of another teenager for flatulence.
The other girl, also 16, now faces a murder charge. Cops haven't released her name.
A group of adults, including the stepfather of victim Shaakira Dorsey, watched the two teens go at it last Wednesday in Warrensville Heights after Shaakira teased the other girl for passing gas, witnesses told KAIT-TV.
"At the end of my driveway, it's some kids fighting, and it's adults there watching," one person told a 911 operator.
Local parent DeAndre Clemons said posts on Facebook and Twitter implied that one of the girls' parents actually brought her to the fight, according to WEWS-TV.
Dorsey's stepfather eventually stopped the brawl. She collapsed and was rushed to a local hospital, where she died.
Medical examiners have not released a cause of death. The girl who is charged with her murder is set to make her first juvenile court appearance Wednesday.
Dorsey was a junior at Warrensville Heights High School and a player on the school's softball team, according to a statement from the school district.
