It all started shortly after 9:00 A.M. 
School officials said they had just been alerted to a facebook posting about a fight at Kenmore High and were calling police when the melee broke out.  It took about fifteen minutes for arriving officers to restore order.  No one was injured and no weapons were seen.  

Police arrived
Lieutenant Rick Edwards of the Akron Police Department says the charges are serious.  “They will be charged with rioting.  We will follow up later…we are looking into surveillance cameras here to see if there are any other kids that were involved that we don’t have in custody; so there could be additional charges later.” 

Cause unclear
School District spokesman Mark Williamson said how and why the fight started is not yet fully known; but that a student from another school, possibly Akron Buchtel High School, may have come into the Kenmore building and gotten into an altercation on the second floor, where the fight then occurred.  Classes at Kenmore were dismissed for the rest of the day.
