A 22-year-old woman was fatally stabbed in a Brooklyn apartment complex during a fight with another woman, who was taken into custody.

Police say Kamisha Richards was attacked inside the Cypress Hills Houses just after 10:30 p.m. Monday.

Richards was stabbed once in the chest and rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

She was apparently stabbed during a dispute that started as an argument with her boyfriend's sister over $20.

An 18-year-old woman was taken into custody following the stabbing.

Meanwhile, family members, including Richards' father, yelled in anguish outside the apartment complex.
