16-year-old girl stabbed during argument inside Dunkin' Donuts

Z’inah Brown turned herself in after she was identified as the suspected killer

A New Rochelle High School student surrendered Thursday in the fatal stabbing of a teen classmate during a wild lunch-hour fight at a local Dunkin Donuts, police said. The student was taken to Jacobi Medical Center where she later died.

The victim was 16-year-old junior Valaree Schwab, 16, of new Rochelle, according to New Rochelle Police Officer Mark McLeroy. Police have identified a suspect and are looking for her.

At 1 p.m. Thursday, she surrendered to authorities and booked for second-degree murder, police said.

Police said the victim, identified as Valaree Megan Schwab, was stabbed by another teenage girl around 12:15 p.m. inside the eatery on North Avenue. Police say at least five other teens were at the Dunkin' Donuts during the stabbing, but so far no one else is facing criminal charges.

Also not clear is how Brown came to be carrying a steak knife along with her victim, being in possession of pepper spray. They are believed to all be students at nearby New Rochelle High School, which is about a half mile away.

Meanwhile, some New Rochelle High School students say their classmates should be careful who they associate with.

Grief counselors were present at the school Thursday for anyone who needs help following Schwab's death. "This is a devastating loss for our school community, and our deepest condolences go out to Valaree's family and friends". The New Rochelle Police Department, with cooperation from the District, investigated the alleged threat and determined it to be unfounded.
