Mpls. South H.S. in Lockdown as Food Fight Evolves into Brawl

Minneapolis police are responding to a fight at South High School, and several ambulances are on the scene outside the school.


According to a source who works for the school, the building is currently in lockdown. The source said the brawl started as a food fight, and escalated from there.

The school posted an update on its website about the incident:

South High School on February 14 was placed on a precautionary code yellow lockdown due to a food fight that escalated into a physical fight.

The incident took place during third period lunch. It began at approximately 12:45 p.m. and lasted 15 minutes. Staff members responded immediately to the incident and followed proper security procedures. The school resource officer and Minneapolis police responded to the matter.

Instruction continued as usual during the code yellow lockdown, but students remained in their classrooms during class periods. South will remain on a code yellow until further notice.

Maintaining a safe environment for our students is a top priority. Fighting is not tolerated at school or on school property. We are committed to following the MPS discipline policy in instances of fighting.
