An argument turned deadly at a subway station in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn where one woman was killed.

A suspect in the fatal stabbing has now been charged the woman’s death.

Police say around 9:15 p.m. Monday, 30-year-old LaTanya Watson and a 20-year-old woman got into an argument on the 3 train.

They both got off at the Sutter Avenue station. The stabbing occurred upstairs in the mezzanine.

That’s where Watson was found with stab wounds to her neck, face and arm.

“I was so shocked. I said I couldn’t believe it … I was really hurt to know that a young girl just riding the train, and over an argument, she gets killed,” Brownsville resident Yvette McFarlane said.

“It just kind of makes me a little nervous. God, that could’ve been my family,” said Brownsville resident Andre Jones.

According to officers, Watson pepper-sprayed 20-year-old Mia Simmons, who retaliated with a small knife.

Witness video showed the devastating aftermath. Crowds gathered as Watson was carried out and rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Simmons was later charged with first-degree manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
