Police investigating violent fight at Baker High School
BAKER - Police are investigating after video surfaced showing a violent two-on-one fight at Baker High School Thursday.
Baker Police Chief Carl Dunn says officers are speaking with the victim of the fight, which appears to have occurred at Baker High sometime Thursday. In the video, two students can be seen violently beating another who is already on the ground.
The fight comes on the heels of the school board's recent decision to pull school resource officers from the campus. Parents told WBRZ that the decision did not sit well with them.
Following Thursday's fight, Chief Dunn said a resource officer would have helped in this particular situation, noting that the fight occurred in a hallway where an officer would have usually been posted.
We've reached out to school officials for comment and are waiting to hear back.
