SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A 13-year-old girl was fatally stabbed following a "disturbance" in Syracuse, police said.
The stabbing was reported shortly before 6 p.m. Monday on West Onondaga Street, Syracuse police said. Detective George Hack said in a statement that the teen was stabbed during a "physical disturbance." She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Police have made no arrests.
The girl, who was not identified by police, was the second teenage homicide victim in Syracuse in three days. Police said Radames Francisco, 15, was fatally shot on Friday by a 14-year-old boy.
"In Syracuse right now, we have children and families in crisis," Mayor Ben Walsh said in a statement. "They are living in constant trauma in circumstances made worse by the stress and disruption of the last year."
The mayor added, "As a community, we need to give them refuge. We need to teach our children to value their own lives and the lives of others. We need to show them they are cared for in our homes, schools, community centers, places of worship and even in our streets."
