LA-area high school reported back to normal amid heightened security after brawl
CARSON, Calif. (AP) ' Classes are proceeding normally amid heightened security at a Los Angeles-area high school where eight students were injured in a courtyard brawl.
Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says that 10 extra patrol cars from the district's police department are at the campus of Carson High School on Thursday, but there have been no further incidents.
A melee involving about 30 students erupted Wednesday during the school's midmorning snack break. The cause of the fight is still under investigation by the school police.
Carazo says that first period attendance Thursday was 83 percent, lower than normal 90-plus percent.
