NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Detectives in Brooklyn are working to identify a suspect in the death of a 16-year-old girl who was stabbed and left to die on the street.

Police said Kyanna Thomas managed to dial 911 on her cell phone after she was stabbed in the head around 3:12 a.m.  Sunday morning in Ocean Hill.

EMTs found Thomas at the corner of McDougal Street and Saratoga Avenue but they couldn’t save her.

Thomas was pronounced dead at Interfaith Hospital.

Her family said she was in Brooklyn visiting her aunt.

“It could have been your daughter, my daughter, was killed by whom, we don’t know. But somebody saw something. Somebody heard something. Somebody may have heard somebody brag about it,” activist Tony Herbert said.

Herbert is enlisting the support of community leaders and resident to comb the neighborhood to assist police in the investigation.
