BOWIE, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say an 18-year-old Bowie State University student was fatally stabbed by her roommate during a fight in a campus dormitory.

Prince George's County police were called around 8 p.m. Thursday for a report of a cutting at the school and responded with university officers.

Police identified the victim as Dominique Frazier of Washington, who was a student at Bowie State. Frazier was found unconscious in a second-floor hallway. Authorities say she was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say the suspect is Frazier's 19-year-old roommate. Investigators believe the two women got into an argument in their suite that turned into a fight.

The roommate fled but later turned herself in to county police. Police have not identified her until charges are filed.
