Birmingham , AL - The fight began after an argument on Facebook between four "friends". They took their squabble to a park but that brawl ended with a 14-year-old girl dead.

The group of girls who quarreled on Facebook decided to settle their differences at a Birmingham park, where they planned to videotape their fight and post it on Facebook.

After the fight began, two teen boys pulled out guns and started shooting at the girls. One of those shots killed 14-year-old Kierra'onna Rice and wounded two others.

Birmingham police arrested two suspects, a 17-year-old male and an 19-year-old male, who were identified by witnesses. Police said formal charges are pending.
