Witnesses told 19 Action News that several adults watched the fight, but did nothing. When the fight was finally over, Dorsey collapsed. 

EMS rushed her to the hospital, where she died, reports The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has not yet released her cause of death.

The teen suspect has been charged with one count of murder.  Her name is not being released because of her age.
