ONLY ON 7: Gang rivalry sparks massive brawl at Silver Spring high school

SILVER SPRING, Md. (ABC7) -- A gang dispute set the stage for an altercation at Montgomery Blair High School that injured staff members and involved more than 100 students, Montgomery County Police say.
According to charging documents filed in Montgomery County District Court, on December 3, Malik Blythers, 18, picked a fight with a rival gang member in a second-floor hallway. It happened around 7:45 a.m., moments after the first period bell rang....

...Blythers, who is now facing criminal charges of disturbing school operations and disorderly conduct, is an alleged member of the "Maple Avenue Street Crew," which fights for turf in Takoma Park and parts of Silver Spring...


  1. Amazing. The Post would give Ms. Johnson five pinocchios for the spin on this event. And shame on MCPS for waiting to tell parents.

  2. Were they arguing over their SAT scores?

    1. Student 1: I got 500 on the SAT!
      Student 2: Was that Reading or Math?
      Student 1: That was the total for Reading + Math.

    2. Intellectuals of Blair?

    3. Student 1: I am sorry that I bumped into you, but this school is extremely overcrowded.
      Student 2: You should move to Western MC to go to school. DCC high schools are over capacity.
      Student 1: MC practices equity in all schools.
      Student 2: It is equal for all schools who have parents with the time to complain.

    4. Anon 12:32 - You lack history. Parents wanted Blair to be overcrowded. Go back and read up on what happened when Blair was moved to the new site.

  3. Wow. Kevin Lewis. Just wow. Kudos to the editors and producers at ABC7 who actually allow stories about MCPS to go on the air.
