Students at a California high school were stabbed and four were injured during a brawl

A high school in Southern California continued Blocking after several students were stabbed during a fight involving about a dozen students.

News cameras captured video of students being wheeled out of Van Nuys High School Wednesday morning. Officials said they were called to the school around 11 a.m

According to KCAL-TV, the Los Angeles Fire Department said three students were stabbed and one was in critical condition.

The school was placed on lockdown while officers investigated, meaning no-one was allowed to leave and no-one was allowed to enter the site.

LAUSD Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said in a opinion that two students had been stabbed and two others had been injured in the fight.

KCAL interviewed a mother of one of the students who was apparently involved in the fight and was injured.

“My child called me and told me that he was attacked by, I guess, 10 people at school and that six others were stabbed,” Raquel Medina said.

“My son wasn’t stabbed,” she continued. “They’re trying to figure out who did it, how did they get into the school? Or they don’t know yet whether they were students at the school.”

Medina said her son was taken to Sherman Oaks Hospital after he was kicked in the head and body.

“The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority,” it said in a statement opinion partly from the district. “There is currently no threat to our campus and all students and staff remain safe. All appropriate procedures were implemented in accordance with district guidelines.”

There are approximately 2,200 students at Van Nuys High School, with another 200 students on a secondary school campus.

Classes at the school are expected to resume on Wednesday afternoon.
