2 teens injured in school fight
Two teenagers were injured and a third was taken into police custody after a fight at a high school in Montgomery County, authorities said.
The incident occurred about 8:30 a.m. Monday at Magruder High School on Muncaster Mill Road in the Rockville area, according to the county police.
Initial reports indicated that neither of the teenagers was seriously injured. It could not be determined whether the person taken into custody was charged.
“There were four kids fighting. One was pushed down the stairs. Police were called,” said school system spokesman Dana Tofig. He said two students were on each side in the fight.
The fire and rescue department was called to the school for someone injured in a fall, a department spokesman said.
Capt. Oscar Garcia said said rescue workers sent to the school found two injured students in the school’s health room. They were complaining of headaches and both had head cuts, he said.
No cause for the fight could be determined Monday night.
However, while being taken to a hospital, at least one of the students said “something about ‘retaliation,’” Garcia said.
