Fist fight between 6- and 7-year-old posted to Facebook

TAMPA - After getting a tip, Tampa Police are investigating video of a fist fight between two little girls, 6 and 7, that was posted to Facebook.

At a press conference, police said the 7-year-old's sister, a 14-year-old girl, can be seen and heard encouraging the fight.

Other children can be seen around the action, some with phones out to record video.

The parents of the three children involved have been cooperating with police, and officials are trying to determine if any laws were broken.

"She did wrong," said Mississippi, father of the 7-year-old and 14-year-old. 

Mississippi, who would only give his nickname, said he and his wife were at work when the incident occurred on March 11.  He said he did discipline his daughters.

"I whooped her," he said.

The 6-year-old girl did not sustain any physical injuries, according to her mother.  Her mother would not speak on camera and asked not to be identified.  She did tell ABC Action News she was upset by what happened and that her daughter is emotionally scarred.

She said since the fight the girls have not spoken.
