Hundreds of students fight in high school cafeteria

| No Comments

A food fight involving hundreds of Minneapolis South High School students escalated to a brawl Thursday, leaving four people hospitalized and the school on lockdown.
200 to 300 students began to throw food, bottles, and trash in what started as a food fight, but quickly escalated into a fight, police said.
Staff members and police liaisons attempted to break up the fight, but were unsuccessful, MPR said. It wasn't until additional police officers arrived that the 15 minute fight was halted as the officers sprayed Mace into the crowd of students, police said.
Three students and one faculty member were hospitalized for minor injuries, Pioneer Press said.
Following the fight, the school went on lock down meaning students were not allowed to leave their classrooms, a statement issued by the school said.
No one was arrested after the fight; however police said they will review surveillance footage which could lead to charges.
