Los Angeles:
The Los Angeles Police Department's Juvenile Division detectives are investigating a fatal stabbing that occurred at a Clothing Factory in Los Angeles.

On Monday, October 31, 2016, around 5:15 p.m., Newton Area patrol officers responded to a radio call of an "Assault with a Deadly Weapon Investigation," in the 1700 block of East Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles.

While officers were on there way to the radio call, they received information that the victim, "Baby Ruby," was on her way to a local hospital in a private vehicle. Officers also learned that the victim had sustained a stab wound.

Officers responded to the hospital, where they learned that "Baby Ruby" had succumbed to her injuries.

The officers met with the mother of "Baby Ruby," who advised them that the stabbbing occurred at her place of employment in the 800 block of McGarry Street.
