Student brawl at Hoover High brings Glendale police, school lockdown

A brawl between students at Hoover High School in Glendale on Wednesday resulted in the campus and two other nearby schools to be placed on lockdown and brought around two dozen police officers to the area.
The fight reportedly began around 1 p.m. near the Hoover’s upper-quad; authorities with the Glendale Unified School District said it’s unknown how many students were involved in the fracas. A video posted on social media showed the fight involved multiple students.
“Little fights turned into big fights,” she said. “Everyone saw, and so everyone started throwing punches.”
The number of students involved in the fight was enough that officers from the Glendale Police Department were called in to stop it. The school, along with nearby Keppel Elementary and Toll Middle School, were placed on lockdown as a result.
