On February 17 at 11:50 a.m., patrol and school resource officers were summoned to Thomas Stone High School for the report of numerous fights. Prior to police arrival, administrators were able to separate some of the students involved; however several more fights broke out requiring the response of additional officers. Officers were able to separate all of the students and de-escalate the situation. A school resource officer has initiated an investigation and is consulting with the State’s Attorney’s Office regarding criminal charges. In addition, the students face disciplinary action from the CCPS. Anyone with information is asked to contact Cpl. Hillman at 301-609-3282 ext. 0607.
