A 14-year-old girl of Alabama, was killed after two men opened fire on a group of girls who decided to fight over Facebook posts.

Birmingham Police have arrested two male suspects, who are 17 and 19 years old, after they were accused of shooting at the group of girls who were fighting in the street on Friday night.

Kierra’onna Rice and two other victims, were taken to a hospital after being shot. Rice died at the hospital while the two other victims are expected to recover.

Rice and a group of girls had an argument on Facebook about three weeks ago, and decided to settle it. Several other girls agreed to meet in a local park for a physical fight around 6:15 p.m.

During the fight, the two suspects fired shots on the crowd, police said.

Lt. Sean Edwards said that there is no evidence that the shooting was planned.

Police have not yet released the names of the suspects.
