Woman stabbed on job by co-worker dies


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC-TV) - An employee stabbed by her co-worker at a Memphis Dollar Tree Store has died.

Memphis police responded to a call at the discount store in busy Poplar Plaza just after 5:00 Saturday evening.

Witnesses said the victim got into a physical altercation with another female employee, who then went out to her car to retrieve a knife. She returned to the store and stabbed her co-worker multiple times.

The victim was transported to The Regional Medical Center, where she died Sunday.

Shopper James Gibbs said Saturday he was shocked by the violent turn of events. "It's a nice place. You wouldn't think something like this wouldn't happen here. Crime is everywhere." 

The suspect is in police custody.
