The Expositor (Brantford) - - WORLD NEWS -

POUGH­KEEP­SIE, N.Y. — Au­thor­i­ties say a New York high school had to be placed on lock­down after a fight broke out among stu­dents and an­other brawl erupted when their par­ents ar­rived. Po­lice tell the Pough­keep­sie Journal that at least 10 of­fi­cers were sent to Pough­keep­sie High School just be­fore noon Tues­day after a fight broke out among stu­dents. Po­lice say the stu­dents’ par­ents later ar­rived and got into a fight as well. School dis­trict of­fi­cials say an ex­ter­nal threat re­quired ad­min­is­tra­tors to put the high school un­der a shel­ter-in-place warn­ing un­til the threat was con­tained. Po­lice Sgt. Ge­orge Ca­ma­cho says he doesn’t have de­tails of the two fights or in­for­ma­tion on whether charges were filed.
