A murder investigation has now been launched, with police naming a 16-year-old who died in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
South Wales Police closed off Baglan Street, Treorchy, at about midday on Friday, with the girl reported to have died and two men injured.
Officers have now named the victim as Wenjing Xu, with her death being treated as murder, and men aged 38 and 31 in custody.
Officers say a 31-year-old man, known to the victim, is in police custody having been arrested on suspicion of murder, and a 38-year-old man is also in police custody in connection with the incident.
Both are being treated in the hospital as a result of injuries sustained during the incident.
The public had been urged by police to “refrain from speculation” about the incident. Local MP Chris Bryant tweeted he was aware of “disturbing events”.
The girl’s family is being supported by specially trained officers and efforts are being made to contact other relatives.
Resident Sarah Belgrove, 54, who lives a few doors from the scene, said the air ambulance was forced to land some way from Baglan Street.
“The paramedics who got out of the helicopter flagged down some cars to give them a lift to the scene,” she said.
The Welsh Ambulance Service said it was called to an “incident at an address in the Ynyswen area of Treorchy” at 12:00 GMT.
“We attended the scene with one rapid response vehicle, three emergency ambulances, our hazardous area response team, and the Wales Air Ambulance,” said a spokesperson.
