Glasgow – At approximately 11:00 Wednesday morning just under two dozen Delaware State Troopers and New Castle County Police Officers responded to Glasgow High School for reports of a fight in progress.

After our initial report yesterday, several concerned parents took to social media, while others contacted us directly. The parents were seeking more information about the incident, some wondering why the school was on lockdown.

Others commenting on perceived issues at the school and rumors that their children are hearing. One parent telling First State Update that they were at the school the day prior and that they observed the staff running around trying to stop a fight on that day as well.

As we continued to report on the incident we learned that several videos of the incident had been captured by students as the fight was occurring.

First State Update was able to observe some of the videos and can now report that somewhere between 8 – 12 young males were involved in the incident, with a group of 25 to 30 (possibly more) onlookers.

We can also report that the fight was not under control until the responding officers began to arrive. The fight was a running melee that covered the entire north side parking lot. As a State Trooper, believed to be the School Resource Officer (SRO) and several staff members were attempting to bring the fight under control, the fight kept popping up in another areas of the parking lot.

As additional Troopers and Officers arrived they were able to bring the situation under control, reportedly taking three individuals into custody.

It’s believed that the school remained on lockdown for the remainder of the school day. Troopers were also asked to be on hand during yesterday’s dismissal.

Authorities have not released any information regarding the incident and our email seeking comment from the Christina School District went unanswered.

It is our understanding that the videos we observed were handed over to the appropriate authorities.
