Pearl City High put on lockdown after several fights break out

PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -- Pearl City High School was placed on lockdown Friday afternoon after several fights broke out on campus.

The school was placed on lockdown shortly after the lunch recess after five or six fights broke out, administrators said.

The series of fights apparently began with a single altercation during the morning recess. "There was a fight involving two students, two girls," said principal Carlyn Fujimoto. "Our administration was able to quell the situation. However, during lunch recess, right towards the ending, there were several fights that broke out and it didn't necessarily relate to one another or the incident in the morning."

According to administrators and students, the fights broke out in the center of campus in an area known as Freshman Hill. Fujimoto said the fights drew a crowd of about 100 or so students, but she believes only about 20 students were actually involved.
