Naima Liggon, 16, was allegedly stabbed to death by another teen during an argument about food sauce at a Washington D.C. McDonald's. CBS News stated, "According to police, the teens — both from Waldorf, Maryland — had ordered food at a D.C. McDonald's and then got in a car together, CBS affiliate WUSA-TV reported. The two then got into an argument over the sauces they had been given, which led to the stabbing, WUSA reported."

Washington D.C.'s Fox 5 reported, "The teen from Waldorf, Maryland is charged with second-degree murder (as a juvenile) among multiple other serious charges, in connection with the stabbing death of another 16-year-old from Waldorf, Naima Liggon." The two teens were supposedly with a group who stopped at McDonald's after leaving a party around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Per Fox 5, Naima's mom, Joy Liggon, gave the following statement about her daughter: "Naima was a beautiful, smart, funny, and unique young lady who loved life. She was loved and admired by so many people. Naima loved music and the arts, basketball, and she was shaping up to be a master barber. She had just been hired to work at Krispy Kreme as a doughnut specialist and was preparing to get her driver's license. The impact of this senseless loss has affected our family, our friends, and our community. Naima will never see her prom or her graduation. We will not get to see her graduate from college or get married or have kids."

She died one day shy of returning to high school at Thomas Stone School. The school's principal, Principal Shanif Pearl, also stated, "I ask that you please keep Naima's family, friends, loved ones and our school community in your thoughts and prayers." Two other teenagers were reportedly killed in the D.C. area that weekend. Washington, D.C., is considered a high-crime area. According to MPDC, Washington D.C. has had 176 murders during 2023.
