Wednesday afternoon, danger broke out at Hale High School. Tulsa Public Schools police got the around 2 o'clock.
"My son goes to school there and three times a week there's always cops there," said parent, Deanna Hernandez.
Once TPS police arrived they found as many as eight students fighting. The violence so severe that one student was taken to the hospital with a head wound.
"They had us on lockdown for about an hour,” said Jaime Hernandez.
Jaime said usually when something like this happens, its gang related.
"Yeah it’s kind of scary, but this is where I go,” said Jaime.
TPD's gang unit got the call too. TPS spokesman, Chris Payne said the fight may have started over a girl. Once police were inside the school, they found even more.
"A student that was found had multiple bags of marijuana,” said Payne. “He was arrested."
At the same time, on the other side of the building a junior high school student had overdosed on hydrocodone. He was rushed to the hospital, but has since returned home.
"Lortabs, they sell them; pop pills in the bathroom, and sell them all the time," said student, Daniel Lewis.
"Almost all drugs are available at this school,” said Jaime.
Jaime is new at Nathan Hale, he used to attend Rogers, but because of Project School House, Nathan Hale has become his home school.
Payne said in some cases students are having trouble adjusting.
"Whenever you start mixing populations of schools you've got a new group coming in," said Payne.
