Police: Facebook dispute being blamed for teen's death

BIRMINGHAM, AL (KTRK) -- A deadly shooting in Alabama apparently started with a fight on Facebook, according to authorities.

Birmingham police say the 14-year-old victim and several other girls were arguing on the social media site. They agreed to meet at a local park to fight.

When the girls arrived at the park, they began fighting. Police say two boys, ages 17 and 19, then arrived with guns and began shooting at the girls.

The 14-year-old was killed, and two others were shot and wounded. Police believe one of the shooters was romantically involved with one of the girls in the fight.

Both of the teens who opened fire were arrested.
