CARSON, Calif. — Los Angeles Unified School District officials say two students have been injured and three arrested in a racially motivated brawl that erupted on a high school courtyard.
District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says about 30 students at Carson High School were involved in the fight that broke out around 10 a.m. Wednesday while students were on recess. Five other students were cited for the fighting, NBC Los Angeles reports.
Carazo says the brawl was racially motivated between black and Latino students. According to Los Angeles’ CBS2, the fight was more specifically between black football players and a Mexican tagging crew at the school.
Conditions of the injured students are not immediately available.
