MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A woman has died after she was stabbed along a busy intersection in Miami Beach.
Miami Beach Police and Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene along Lincoln Road and Collins Avenue just before 5 a.m., Thursday.
She was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where she later succumbed to her injuries.
“She’s immediately transported to Jackson Memorial’s trauma unit where, unfortunately, she later died,” Miami Beach Police Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said.
Detectives closed off the intersection for hours as they converged around the area. Based on earlier information they gathered, they believe that another woman was the knife-wielding attacker.
“It’s believed that a woman fled that scene who was responsible for the stabbing,” Rodriguez said.
According to police, witnesses told them that there was some sort of dispute within a group. Investigators collected evidence and continue to gather information from those who were there at the time of the stabbing.
“We’re asking anyone who may have information who did not stay on scene to contact Miami Beach Police or Crime Stoppers,” Rodriguez said.
A description of the suspect has not been released by authorities.
The victim’s identity has also not been released.
Roads in the area were shut down but reopened just before 10:30 a.m.
