Deputies and school officials looking for answers to Williston fight

Video

Body

New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies and school officials are looking into why a fight broke out last night at Williston Middle School.

It happened behind the school, while a talent show was going on inside. A school resource officer who was acting as security for the event, and a teacher, attempted to break up the fight.

Officials said they were then rushed by the crowd, so the deputy fought back by using pepper spray.

Three ambulances responded and treated people at the scene. Now, school officials are investigating what sparked the fight, and whether students were involved.

“That’s why we have law enforcement there; we want them to practice law enforcement. At the same time, if school consequences are appropriate, they are also going to be omitted out,” said Rick Holliday, New Hanover County assistant superintendent.

At this point no charges have been filed.
