Chaos Erupts at South L.A. School, Prompting Large Police Response
More than three dozen Los Angeles police officers were dispatched to John C. Fremont High School this week after a number of physical fights broke out simultaneously on campus.
It’s not clear what led to Tuesday’s violence, but it was widespread. When officers first arrived, they found hundreds of students standing outside the school. The students threw rocks and bottles at the responding officers, who were forced to call for backup. The school was placed on lockdown.
Eight students were detained and one was taken to the hospital with a minor injury.
