MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A number of police cars responded to Minneapolis South High School Thursday after an alleged food fight escalated into a melee involving 200 to 300 students.
The school posted a note on its website stating the high school was placed on a precautionary code yellow lockdown due to “a food fight that escalated into a physical fight.”
Sgt. William Palmer, of the Minneapolis Police Department, said no weapons were involved in the incidents. However, four people were taken to the hospital following the melee.
Twelve people complained that they had been sprayed with mace. Police at the scene said they had to use chemical agent to get crowd under control as they were being pelted with objects as they tried to break things up.
The main incident occurred during the third period lunch, around 12:45 p.m. and lasted about 15 minutes. Staff members responded to the incident and followed security procedures, according to the school.
One student, Abdi Sheikh, said he saw hundreds of students fighting in what appeared to be a racial incident.
“A big riot,” he said. “All types of races.”
Sheikh said about 20 police rushed into the school shortly after.
Another student said an initial fight happened during the school’s first lunch period. By the time the third lunch period started, all the hype from the first fight caused tensions to boil over.
“My lunch was third lunch,” she said. “There was fight after fight after fight. People couldn’t breathe. It was very scary.”
She said the fights were over pride.
“I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,” she said. “They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.”
Odd. Most of the Muslims in Minnesota are black Somali’s and black leaders overwhelmingly promote Islam. Where will black convert to Islam Keith Ellison come down on this?
