Heightened police presence at Tri-Cities High School after fights, threats of violence – FOX 5 Atlanta

There was a heavy police presence at Tri-Cities High School in East Point Thursday following a threat of violence that was made on social media, and several fights on campus. A fight on campus Wednesday led to a soft lockdown at the school.

FOX 5 obtained a video of some of those fights.

A parent shared images of a brawl that broke out in the lunchroom at Tri-Cities High School on Wednesday.

It’s one of several videos of recent campus fights, and messages threatening violence at the East Point campus, now circulating on social media.

One parent we spoke to, whose child attends Tri-Cities, asked us not to show her face on camera because she worries for her family’s safety.

She said Wednesday’s brawl was one of a half dozen fights on campus that day and told FOX 5 the fighting’s been a problem since school started.
