Gage Park School Fights Result in 17 Arrests

Tuesday, after two fights broke out at Gage Park High School at 5630 S. Rockwell St., police officers arrested 17 students.

After stopping one fight at the southwest side school, police responded to another that broke out in a third floor hallway at around 12:40 PM.

Police say the second fight “disrupted the normal activities of other students”, so all 17 students involved in the fight (males and females) were arrested and taken to the Chicago Lawn District for processing. One student was released while the remaining 16 were charged as juveniles involved in mob action.

The reason for the fight is unknown.
