When police arrived, they found a man giving aid to Holliman who had an injury to the neck and was bleeding severely.

He later died at the hospital.

On Monday, his family was in tears about what happened.

"I wish he had stayed home," said his mother, Sandra Clark. "I miss him so much. I hate for him to leave this way. We have so much crime in Blytheville. I guess he goes down as one of the statistic."

Police have not released the teen's name because she is a juvenile.

She is expected in court on Tuesday.
