Girl, 11, Dies Within Hours Of After-School Fight

MSNBC.COM - The two 11-year-old girls had planned their after-school fight. When the time came, a few shoves and punches were exchanged, and it was over within a minute. But hours later one of them was dead.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office was investigating how Joanna Ramos could leave the alley near her Long Beach elementary school with a bloody nose and end up dying in an intensive care unit.

The cause of death, and the circumstances behind it left family, friends and authorities confused and seeking answers.

"I personally don't hear of 11-year-old fights like this especially girls. I can't say they never happen but I think everyone was completely caught off-guard by this event," police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said Sunday.

Pratt urged caution about linking the fight to the girl's death with certainty until a coroner's report is released. Police, who have interviewed the other girl involved in the fight, were investigating and said that no arrests are immediately planned.

Ramos, returned to the after-school program after the fight and some time later vomited, the girl's aunt Patricia Catalan, told the Press-Telegraph newspaper at a memorial in the elementary school.

The girl's mother was called when she wasn't feeling well. click here to read the full story
