According to the latest information from the sheriff’s office, the situation was immediately controlled.
Columbus, Ohio — A representative of Franklin County Sheriff detained several after multiple fights at Westland High School on Wednesday morning.
Columbus police officers and agents from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office surrounded the school, which was reportedly crowded after the school’s resource officer issued an officer in a trouble call.
A Southwestern City school district spokesman said there was a conflict between students in the corridors between classes. The district said the school followed its safety plan by calling the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office said a student used pepper spray to help the school’s resource officer control the situation. Surveillance cameras captured part of the battle.
Other students who first evacuated to the school’s REC center as a precautionary measure were then sent back to the classroom. The school was reopened, but a school spokesman said some parents had taken the students home.
The sheriff’s office said the agent reported that the weapons were not involved and that rumors of stabs at school were false.
Several have been detained for interrogation and authorities are continuing to investigate. No injuries have been reported and no one has been arrested or charged at this time.
