New York City, New York (NewYorkInjuryNews.com) — The New York Police Department reported that a teenage girl living in Queens was stabbed to death as a wild quarrel spun off over cutting in line at a bus stop. Keyanna Jones was only 15 years old and the man who stabbed her was more than two times her age. Her mother, Shaqwana Jackson, said that she was her eldest daughter and losing her meant losing a daughter as well as a friend.
The officials said that 39-year old Winston Alladin has been charged with criminally possessing a weapon and reckless manslaughter. Alladin worked as a security guard in Takashimaya, Manhattan, an upscale Japanese department store and told police that he had acted in self-defense.
Raymond Kelly, the police commissioner, said that the event occured when Alladin rebuked a young child and his mother as they jumped ahead of him while stepping on a bus headed for downtown Jamaica. Kelly said that three people on the bus felt insulted by Alladin’s curses and came after him when he got off the bus near his home in Springfield Gardens at around 10:30 pm. The group of people increased to 10 with Keyanna who walked to the bus stop.
Alladin told the cops that the mob started throwing rocks and bricks at him causing him to run into a yard in a neighborhood nearby and asked them to call 911. They refused to do so and forced him back to the sidewalk to confront the mob. Although the investigators have said that minor injuries of Alladin show that he had struggled, but the fatal wound of Keyanna appears to be a direct stabbing and not a slash in defense.
Her mother said that Keyanna had been nicknamed ‘Smiley’ as she maintained a cheerful disposition throughout the day. She had just completed her 1st year at John Adams High School and was going to start her summer job at the Roy Wilkins Park.
