Fitzgerald High School in Warren

Three teens are being charged after a fight at Fitzgerald High School in Warren.

Police said the fight occurred in front of the resource officer on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 2:30 p.m.

Police say based on security cameras, video, and witnesses, the fight appeared to be pre-planned.

Two law enforcement trained staff members were injured. One had a chipped tooth and the other had an injured leg.

"I think you have to give a lot of credit to the school resource officer," said William Dwyer, the Warren Police Commissioner. "That is really dedicated a true professional, that has a team working with him to prevent these types of tragedies or incidents, I should say. This could have been a tragedy."

Two 16-year-old boys are charged with Inciting a Riot and Assault and Battery.

"Inciting a riot, well, it's pretty unheard of but it's something that we feel is very important to send that message out that we're not going to tolerate this type of behavior," Dwyer said.

A 17-year-old girl, who is being charged as an adult, was charged with Assault and Battery.

This is the second incident at Fitzgerald High School after a teen was fatally stabbed in September.
