A pregnant woman was fatally stabbed in Venice, Los Angeles, late Monday, after an argument with three people, according to police. Officials are looking for two women and a man in connection with the case.
The victim was identified on Tuesday as 22-year-old Jasmine Preciado, who was three months pregnant with her second child and had a 3-year-old daughter. According to her family, Preciado was on a date with her boyfriend the night of the fateful incident.
The two got into a scuffle with three people after which she was stabbed. Preciado was rushed to hospital where she was declared dead.
Surveillance footage showed moments leading up to the stabbing. A woman is seen on the sidewalk holding what appears to a knife.
The victim’s family has demanded justice.
"Did you know that by hurting Jasmine, you hurt her daughter? You hurt her family, and you hurt her friends," Christina, Preciado's cousin, said to NBC Los Angeles.
"All I got to say for the people, the girls who did this to her, turn yourself in because no matter what, you're not going to get away with it. Judgement day comes, you'll pay for it," David, Preciado’s relative reportedly said.
A candle-light memorial was held for Preciado Tuesday.
