14 year old Kierra'onna Rice from Birmingham, Alabama was arguing with several other girls in a message exchange on Facebook, writes CNN.
The girls decided to meet in a park to fight. The fight would be filmed and posted online.
Two boys of 17 and 19 years showed up when the fight started fighting and began shooting at the girls, said the local police to WBRC. Both boys are arrested.
Investigators believe that one of the boys is the boyfriend of one of the girls the14-year-old fought against.
- This is extremely challenging for us, says the head of the Birmingham police, AC Roper, to AL.com.
- It is challenging for families, because it is about a group of young people who decide to fight and then post it on social media, where everyone can see it.
The 14 year old girl was taken to hospital after the incident, but later died. Rice is the second 14-year-old killed in just a few weeks.
- It is time that parents take responsibility for their children's actions, says Herman Henderson, a local pastor and leader of the movement "Stop the violence" to Alabama's13.
- Where do they get the guns from? Where do they learn to be so violent so young? What happened to be home at a certain time? the pastor ask.
