A 16-year old girl has been arrested and charged as an adult with first degree murder after allegedly stealing a knife and a machete from a Walmart store and using it to stab her Uber driver to death in suburban Chicago.

Chicago Tribune reports that when the suspect, identified as Eliza Wasni was arrested behind a building near the crime scene, she was found with the knife and the machete.

The deceased, 34-year old Grant Nelson called for help at about 3.20AM on Wednesday, saying that he was stabbed by his passenger as he was dropping her off.

Sadly, Nelson died at a nearby hospital a few hours later.

Nelson’s blood-splattered silver sedan remained in the intersection as police investigated his killing.

“We are heartbroken by the loss of one of our partners,” Uber, a car-hailing service provider, said in a statement. “Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.”

Surveillance footage from Walmart showed Wasni walking around the store with a knife and machete and then leaving without paying for them, the prosecutor said.

Following the news of his death, a Facebook user who claimed to work in the Walmart store said:

Police says Nelson picked up Wasni a few blocks away from the Walmart store, and minutes into the ride, she began stabbing him.

He managed to pull over his Hyundai and run to a nearby condominium building lobby, where he pushed buzzers and yelled, “Help me, help me. I’m going to die,” Assistant State’s Attorney Michelle Cunningham said.
