MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A 29-year-old woman was found unresponsive on the ground at the Memphis apartment complex Sunday night.  She had been stabbed multiple times and later died.

Neighbors at the Bent Tree Apartments said the scene was chaotic as many of them watched as police responded to the 911 call that ended in the woman's death.

Many residents said they were fed up with the violence in their community.

"I don't like this stuff," said Eileen Pierce.  "You're scared for yourself because you never know what might happen to you."

"It was just crazy," said Jeremy Young.  "People just fighting, I wish I could've been there to stop it."

Authorities arrested a 26-year-old woman in connection with the crime, but so far no charges have been filed.  Investigators are still trying to determine what sparked the incident.

Young said the woman who was stabbed was a mother.

"It's sad because the woman got a baby, so I just feel real bad for her," Young said.  "I hope she rests in peace."

Police have not said if the two women are related.
