A teenager is said to been have shot dead in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday night after a fight that started on Facebook ended fatal.

Police say, the 14 year old, Kierra'onna Rice was one of a group of girls who agreed to meet in a park for a planned scuffle, Al.com reports.

The fight, which allegedly started weeks ago on Facebook, ended up claiming the 14-year-old's life when two male suspects fired into the crowd of feuding girls, according to WIAT.

"This was an absolutely senseless killing," Birmingham Police Lt. Sean Edwards told Al.com. "They took it upon themselves to fire recklessly into a crowd."

The two males, ages 17 and 19, were taken into custody by police after the shooting. They are not being identified, though some reports state that one of them was dating one of the girls that fought the victim.

Two others were taken to the hospital with injuries.

"Fights on the street are not fair and are extremely unpredictable," Edwards said. "You're agreeing to accepting the harm that may take place to you and others."

He added that police have seen an increase in armed teenagers of late. "We are starting to see them become more violent," he said. "They're using guns to solve their issues."

Last month, another teen, 13-year-old Anthony Diaz, was shot and killed in Chicago over Facebook posts, people.com reported.
