CHICAGO, IL (CNN) -- A 13-year-old boy in Chicago was shot and killed during a dispute, allegedly over a Facebook post.

Police say Anthony Diaz was shot in the chest as he was walking with a group. Diaz's sister says the teen wanted to back her up in a fight with some other girls over a Facebook post.

"We came, we fought. They just got out of hand. They jumped all of us and they ended up shooting my brother," said Jennifer Sosa, the victim's sister.
