An altercation between two students in a Baltimore County high school locker room early Thursday morning resulted in one being airlifted to a hospital and another taken into custody by police.
Baltimore County police were called to Franklin High School in Reisterstown on Thursday morning and have made an arrest in connection to the incident. Officials have not identified the person taken into police custody.
Police said in a statement Thursday evening that officers responded to the school at around 7:50 a.m. for a report of a fight between two girls.
The department said a victim told a school resource officer that she’d been struck in the head. Police say a female youth has been arrested and charged with first-degree assault.
In a statement sent to parents Thursday morning, Franklin Principal Kieran O’Connell described a physical altercation between two students in a locker room.
The altercation did not involve weapons, according to O’Connell, who also pledged to take “swift action” in accordance with school system policy.
The instructional day continued as scheduled for students.
