An 11-year-old girl died in Long Beach on Friday after she had gotten into a fight with another girl earlier in the day, police said.

The girl, whose identity has not been released by authorities, was brought into an emergency room unconscious and not breathing.

She went into surgery and then was placed in an intensive-care unit in critical condition. She died shortly before 9 p.m.

Police divulged little information Saturday -- including the nature of her injuries, where the fight happened or  about the other girl involved in the fight -- because the investigation remains ongoing, officials said.
