ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police say 14-year-old Ladrona Hamilton stabbed 12-year-old Shawn Jamal Williams in a mobile home park off of East Broad Avenue.

And residents there tell us this didn't have to happen if parents in this neighborhood would watch after their children and keep them off the streets.

Albany Police were called to 1709 East Broad Avenue at 10:49 PM Friday night. That is were they found Williams with a stab wound to the chest.

He was transported by ambulance to the hospital and was later pronounced dead in the emergency room at 11:35 PM.

Neighbors told police that Shawn was throwing rocks at Ladrona, when she got the knife out of her house. But they all agree this never would have gone this far if there was adult supervision.

"Keep your kids from running around in the streets. Be with them at all times and watch them. Don't let them hang with the wrong people.

 Because with mine, I am going to keep mine and watch mine. I have an older son and a older daughter who is 16 and I am going to watch them and keep them at home at all times," said the vicitm's cousin, Cheryl Jones.

Police did spend the night looking for Hamilton. Her mother told us that she made Hamilton turn herself in Saturday morning, but Albany Police officers had to go all the way to Cordele to arrest her.

14-year-old Ladrona Hamiliton is now in the Dougherty County Jail facing murder and aggravated assault charges.

This death is the second homicide in Albany in a week. It's Albany's third homicide this year.
