Teen Stabbed to Death Over Sweet and Sour SauceDC Teen Killed in McDonald’s Dispute

A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death outside a McDonald’s in Washington, DC, in an argument over sweet and sour sauce, police said.

Naima Liggon, of Waldorf, Maryland, was allegedly killed by another 16-year-old girl outside the fast food chain in the U Street area around 2 a.m. Sunday, the Metropolitan Police Department said.


The deadly knife attack stemmed from an argument between the teens and a third girl over the dipping sauce, police said.

Liggon and the third girl hit the teenage suspect, who did not initially fight back, police said. But the suspect then “lunged” at Liggon and the third teen as they tried to get into a vehicle, police said.

The suspect allegedly stabbed Liggon in the chest and abdomen with a 7-and-a-half-inch pocketknife, police said. Liggon was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.


The 16-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with second-degree murder while armed, police said. She was ordered held without bail.

The suspect’s name has not been released due to her age.

Liggon’s death is the latest in a string of violent crimes involving juveniles in Washington, DC. The city has seen a 16% increase in homicides so far this year, and many of the victims have been minors.


DC officials have created a curfew for minors age 16 and younger in several parts of the city, including the U Street area, that begins on Friday. The curfew is part of an effort to curtail juvenile violence.

Liggon’s death is a tragedy, and it’s a reminder of the dangers of violence, even over something as seemingly trivial as sweet and sour sauce.

Our hearts go out to Liggon’s family and friends during this difficult time.
