London was stabbed twice in the back and once in the neck in an abandoned house at around 12.40am. She died in hospital.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told NBC10 that an argument between Chanel and her 31-year-old alleged attacker escalated into a physical fight and she was stabbed as a result.

Her assailant and a witness carried Chanel downstairs and put her on quilts outside. They performed CPR on the victim and then called the police.

Officers rushed Chanel to hospital where she was pronounced dead just after 1am.

Her roomate Raheam Felton, 31, has been arrested. Felton, who has prior felony convictions of aggravated assault, prostitution and burglary, shared the apartment in the 2200 block of Ingersoll Street with Chanel and another transgender woman.
