HIGH POINT, N.C. — A Guilford County School was on a brief lockdown Wednesday after some Andrew High students got into a fight.
The school district said a non-student was on campus at the time and police said several people face charges.
The district also said one staff member was treated for minor injuries and administrators were trying to diffuse the situation.
Myesha Steele, who’s a student at the school captured it all on video. She said she was in the hallways getting a bag of chips when she heard some loud bangs and yelling.
"It was just a big fight, I'm talking about teachers getting hit, the principal hit, police officers get hit. I'm like whoa, this is crazy,” said Steele.
"I really thought somebody was going to get shot, the way that they was fighting, she said.”
The video shows an assistant principal throwing himself between two guys to break up the fight. An image that means a lot to Myesha's mom.
“I saw that there were two police officers and some adults there. So, I was very confident that they would handle the situation,” said her mom.
In a statement, the school said, "We have already taken disciplinary action against those involved, and we thank our staff and law enforcement for their quick response today."
