GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. — A 20-year-old woman died Tuesday night, April 16, after police say she was stabbed on a playground at a Grand Rapids elementary school.

Police were called to Murphy Elementary School at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, where they found the woman lying on the playground unconscious with a stab wound to her abdomen.

A 15-year-old Grand Rapids boy was standing next to her with a knife in his hand, police said. He was taken into custody at the scene.

The victim, also from Grand Rapids, was taken to Grand Itasca Hospital, where she died from her injuries. Her identity is expected to be released today, police said.

Police believe the two arranged to meet at the playground, and drugs were found at the scene, Grand Rapids Police Chief Scott Johnson said in a news release. The meeting was not related to the school, and the public is not in danger, Johnson said.
