Rumors of fight prompt security precautions at Aiea High School


    Aiea High School

Aiea High School temporarily locked its front gates today as a precaution after rumors spread on campus about a possible fight.

School officials closed the gates from 12:20 p.m. to 1 p.m. today, according to Aiea-Moanalua-Radford Complex Area Superintendent John Erickson.

Erickson noted there was no lockdown on campus and no disruption to classes.

“It was just precautionary. Nothing happened which is good,” he said.

The rumors followed a large fight after school on Thursday at a nearby park.

At about 3 p.m. Thursday, police said 30 officers responded to the fight at Makalapa Park in Aiea. Close to 100 people gathered at the park, police said.

There were no arrests.

Shayne Enright, spokeswoman of the Honolulu Emergency Services Department, said paramedics took two males, ages 16 and 21, to a hospital Thursday after the fight. One male was in serious condition and the other in stable condition.
