Memphis high school on lockdown after fights


MEMPHIS (AP) - A Memphis high school has been placed on Lockdown after a series of fights broke out among students.

Shelby County Sheriff's spokesman Chip Washington told The Commercial Appeal investigators are looking into whether the fights at Southwind High on Friday were related to a shooting Thursday night in which two teens were shot at a Hickory Hill park.

The school is about two miles from the park where the shooting occurred.

Washington says a fight broke out in a crowd of people gathered at the park. One of the 17-year-old boys was shot in the back and the other in the shoulder.

The teens were trying to leave the park when someone in the group started shooting. The fight happened about 6 p.m.

No arrests had been made.
