WAUWATOSA, Wis. – Wauwatosa Police responded Wednesday to a physical fight involving six Wauwatosa West High School students.
According to Wauwatosa West, the fight took place outside the cafeteria. Medical staff intervened at the school for a student who had difficulty breathing following the altercation.
The school said the Wauwatosa Police Department was called due to the potential for escalation. Two school resource officers were already at the school after an incident on Monday. Five other officers arrived on campus to help with Wednesday’s fight. No weapons were involved in the incident.
Wauwatosa West said it would have “significant consequences for anyone who chooses to fight” at school.
“It is unfortunate that the start of the school day has been disrupted by this incident,” Wauwatosa West Principal Corey Golla said in a statement Wednesday. “Wauwatosa West is a great school populated by great students – most of whom do the right thing every day. School safety is a top priority and will remain so until these incidents are eliminated from our school. I would like to point out that students who choose to engage in fights will be subject to academic consequences and potential legal action. Repeated involvement can and will result in recommendations for expulsion.
