Norfolk, Va. - Two Norview High School students were taken into custody by Norfolk Police on Friday after several fights broke out at the school during a fire alarm.

Several students became involved in a fight outside after nearly 200 students refused to go back into the school after the fire alarm had ended. A school security guard attempted to break up the fight and was subsequently assaulted by several students in the group,  police say.

Norfolk Police officers on scene to assist with the fire alarm came to assist the security guard.

A 16-year-old female student involved in the assault on the security guard resisted arrest and was tased by police. She was taken into custody, treated for minor injuries, and has been charged with assault and battery, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

The security guard received injuries to her face and body and declined medical treatment on scene.

Meanwhile, a second fight broke out at another location on school grounds around the same time. Officers responded and were able to control the situation.

As a result, a 16-year-old male student was taken into custody. Charges are pending against him for assault and battery, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

Norfolk Police note that they treat these incidents with urgent significance and continues its ongoing partnership with Norfolk Public Schools.

Added police presence at Norfolk Public Schools will be initiated next week, to help curb any form of this behavior from occurring in the future.

Norfolk Public Schools has released a statement saying in part, "All school activities for this evening are canceled, and the football game scheduled for tonight between Norview and Granby high schools has been rescheduled for 2 p.m. tomorrow, October 25, at ODU’s Powhatan Field. The safety of our students and staff is our top concern, and we appreciate your patience as we investigate, analyze what happened, and take appropriate action. We want to thank the vast majority of our Norview students who behaved well during this situation, and our staff members who worked expertly to ensure the safety and security of all concerned. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school on Monday. Norfolk Police will continue to work in close partnership with us next week for a secure and orderly environment."

    This is the second time this week that this occurred! The fire alarm was pulled 3 times on Wednesday at Norview and several fights also broke out then as well!!

    Make the parents of these thugs and thuggettes stand right next to them in court. Give them all the same punishment. Then , close the school , there is no educating there, just drug deals and selling the stuff they stole over the weekend.

    • norview high student

      Why would you want to close one of the best schools in norfolk .I can attempt there are a lot of ghetto people there but they are smart but they just hang around the wrong crowd

  • Grandparent

    I have grand kids there and have heard they added a lot of students this year and @ lunch there is standing room only ? How can the school not be asking for trouble when you have over populated the school . I heard it started today with a milk carton thrown at one kids girl friends face. The the fire bell got pulled so it all went out side
    Sad the kids who had nothing to do with all this ,the ones who are there to learn have to put up with all this and miss there last home coming dance

  • The People

    How about a public beating of these hoodrats who caused all this !! Today’s youth has no direction …and 75% of them have no future!! Smdh !!

  • Really?

    As a black woman , I’m TIRED of the monolithic grouping of blacks. Do you honestly believe that what’s protrayed in the media is how ALL blacks conduct themselves? There are blacks I don’t want to be around. There are whites I don’t want to be around, an d there are many other ethnicities I don’t want to be around. Do you know the reason why? It’s because they are IGNORANT! There are good and bad in EVERY group. As far as your issue with what your grandparents felt about segregation, do realize that blacks weren’t dying “to be in the presence of whites”. Blacks were fighting for equal opportunities.

      Quick question. What group makes up the HUGE majority of crime riddled neighborhoods? Feel free to not answer to save face. You can continue to be blind to the fact that blacks in general are the leading cause of violence in this country if you want to, but the rest of us will continue avoiding them at all costs.

      • Really?

        Just your use of the term “huge majority” indicate that you are well aware that it’s not ALL. I don’t need to “save face”. If statistics show that a disproportionate number of black males make up the prision population in some areas, then that’s just a fact. A fact that WE have to acknowledge and address. Again, my initial point was it is not ALL or even MOST blacks.
        You are certainly free to live where you can afford and with whom you feel most comfortable around.

        • CryMea River

          Name ONE predominantly white neighborhood that you would feel unsafe while walking with your family at night? And I would ask you to name all the black neighborhoods that you wouldn’t dare enter after sundown, but I think there is a limit on how many characters can be typed in this box.

      I completely agree. Very well-stated. I might add that while the scene was surely chaotic, there are a number of children doing very well at Norview. The principal’s efforts have garnered national attention. Norview’s rankings, both nationally and state-wide, exceed those of all schools in this area, except one. “All schools in this area” actually includes Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Hampton, Suffolk, and Newport News. It is sad that this kind of behavior overshadows the good things happening in the school. Perhaps if the media sensationalized the good things at the school as much as this foolishness, more students would aim for more positive attention. At the end of the day, the failure can be shared by multiple sources.

    • Really?

      It is evident that your goal, as well as many others, is just to rant and attempt to evoke anger. I have better things to do with my time.
      Be well.

      • Go Tides!

        They are just acting like future democrap voters. What do you expect from obama’s sons and daughters? Norview HS should have a class on how to get a job, show up on time, and get work done. Oh wait, that would be “acting white”.

        • Alex

          Oh, the acts of getting a job,showing up on time, and getting work done are considered acting white? That’s interesting. Why aren’t the acts of executing mass shootings, making ignorant comments online, and oppressing all people who are not white considered acting white? I have a child that attends Norview. My child is in the gifted program, takes all Honors level classes at the grade-level above his own, is a consistent Honor Roll student, and was nominated and accepted as part of the school’s male scholars program. So don’t worry your silly head about the future democrap voters over there acting like animals; instead be VERY concerned about this future democrat, that I am raising, who is well on his way to the type of success you will never know- even with all that white privilege you like to deny exists.

  • uhhyeah

    This comment is about as ignorant as it gets. You know that the majority of serial killers are white men, right? With them, you may not even know you’re in danger. White men like Drew Peterson, Scott Peterson, the Craig’s list killer, the list goes on. What about the Aryan brotherhood who accounts for less than 1/3 of Americas prison population but commit around 60% of prison murders? Not to mention the pedos and ponzi schemers who are just as bad. You can’t judge goodor bad by color, it’s just a silly notion.

    • sickofbaddrivers

      I believe your comment is actually as ignorant as it gets. Serial killers make up such a small percentage of the murder epidemic. I mean really… probably less than 1 percent.. As for prison murders.. who cares; and again, a very small percentage of the murders committed in this country. And that brings us to the main statistic you conviently left out. That the adult black male makes up far less than 15 percent of the country’s population, yet is responsible for 80 percent of the murders. And that 1 in 4 black males is covered by prison, parole or probation. Those are undisputed facts that NOONE should be proud of.

      • CryMea River

        Don”t you know that the black race IS proud when the get arrested or shot? It’s a right of passage to them.

        • uhhyeah

          Apparently you never saw the white boy who killed His classmates, wore a shirt that said killer on it to court and told the parents he masturbated with the same hand he killed their Kids with? Or the other white boy who beat his girlfriends son to death and then told his mom “I’m a blond haired blue eyed white boy, all I have to do is cry and the jury will let me off” also watched a special where this white man killed his family , got away with it, got remarried and pushed his wife off a cliff. He didn’t take credit for the other murders until they told him he wouldn’t be considered a serial killer if he didn’t. Killers brag all the time not just blacks. You know how many white guys I grew up with who sell drugs and get arrested and brag? Get off your high horse, no ones better than anyone

      • uhhyeah

        No ones proud of the statistics but you all missed the point of the post. All people are capable of violence. You’re talking about incarceration rates but do you honestly think that every man that goes to prison is guilty? And how can Blacks be responsible for 80% of the country s murders when most of the murders in this country are unsolved? And the lady below says 60%. Y’all can’t even get your facts the same. And just because someone is in prison doesn’t mean no one cares. You conveniently overlooked that fact. And even a majority of white people know that blacks are unfairly targeted by police. In Ferguson, blacks are more likely to ‘ve stopped and searched even though whites there were 60% more likely to be carrying contraband. In the United kingdkm, blacks have been found no more likely to commit a crime then any other race but they are 9 times more likely to be stopped by the cops. Who knows if all those statistics are correct? And as of 2012, there are more black males in college than in prison so everyone can stop making blacks the “bad” race. We’re all human, were all capable of bad things, I’m sure you can agree with that

        • sickofbaddrivers

          yeah, I’ve seen the cases where white people committed atrocities, such as the ones you’ve listed. The difference between you and me is, I hope they get their a$$ handed to them in court. I’m not gonna make excuses for them. And I am certainly not gonna celebrate if they get off… All you have are excuses for the black race.

        • sickofbaddrivers

          I’m gonna go back on my word and make an excuse for someione that I’m assuming is white. Crymea River said something that was ugly. So I’m gonna use the black tactic and make an excuse for why he’d do that. He’s probably sick of seeing the same ole story in the news day in and day out, and he lashed out. Just like all those blacks that the cops are picking on, they are lashing out.. How’s that, fair?

    • CryMea River

      Why don’t you look up the percentage of murders in the US and see who is doing all the killing. More blacks kill each other in Chicago in a month than all those serial killers you named combined. 65% of all solved murders are committed by blacks( if you add in the unsolved ones, it;s probably way more than that, cause we all know blacks”aint see nuffin”) even though they barely make up 30% of the population.

    • bruh mane from da fowth flo

      thats why i always laugh at them corny white boy jokes cuz then they wont aim at you when they come shoot up the school
