Violent outbreaks at Stevenson H.S. force officials to dismiss students early

Violent outbreaks at Adlai Stevenson High School in Castle Hill Thursday forced officials to dismiss students early.

Department of Education officials believe the incident is gang related and say a fight after hours on school grounds at I.S. 131 may have led to Thursday's violence at Stevenson.

Some students say although violence is not a new occurrence at their school Thursday's incident was the worst they had ever seen.

Education officials say some students were arrested and others were reprimanded. More arrests may be forthcoming.
