WTOP: 3 arrested after 2 fights, 1 fire alarm at Montgomery Co. school

WASHINGTON – Three students were arrested following two separate fights at Paint Branch High School Friday.
Police were called to the Burtonsville, Maryland, school for a report of fighting about 11:20 a.m., a spokeswoman for Montgomery County Police says.
The sequence of events began when security guards tried to stop a fight from starting between two students inside the school’s cafeteria. A young woman who was sitting nearby then attacked one of the guards, police say.
A guard pulled the fire alarm to evacuate the building. The second fight broke out soon after when a police officer barred another student from getting back inside the school...

  1. Having a Clery-type report of crime, confrontation, and weapons at schools would help parents' awareness.
    I understand from a parent that a student brought a gun into another school and used it. This is not mentioned in the news article. I understand that the parent was relived that the school successfully implemented its lock down procedure to prevent the student with the gun from using it on anyone but himself.
