The fight took place last Wednesday at about 8 p.m. when, according to witnesses, the suspect, whose name has not been released, passed gas.

The victim, Shaakira Dorsey, started teasing the suspect and, consequently, a fistfight broke out between the two, WOIO-TV reported.

“At the end of my driveway, it’s some kids fighting, and it’s adults there watching,” one person told a 911 operator.

According to witnesses the victim was teasing the suspect because she passed gas.  The adults stood by and watched as the fight continued before the victim’s stepfather finally intervened.

Dorsey then collapsed.

EMS rushed her to the hospital, where she died.  The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has not yet released her cause of death.

The other girl, also 16, now faces murder charges.

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.
