A 16-year-old girl faces a murder charge in the stabbing death of her friend, also 16, outside a McDonald’s in Washington, D.C. in an argument about sweet and sour dipping sauce.

Police did not identify the accused assailant in the murder because of her age. But the girl from Waldorf, Maryland, was arrested on Sunday in the death of Naima Liggon, also from Waldorf, police said. She was charged with second-degree murder while armed, police said, adding she had a knife at the time of her arrest.

“At the end of the day, someone is dead over a dispute over sauce,” D.C. Superior Court Judge Sherri Beatty-Arthur said, the Washington Post reported.

The killing happened on Sunday in the 1900 block of 14th Street, Northwest, police said in a news release. Authorities learned about the stabbing at 2:10 a.m. when officers responded to a report of a girl seeking treatment for stab wounds at a local hospital, where Naima succumbed to her injuries.
