RIVERDALE, Ga. (AP) — School officials say a meeting that included parents to settle a dispute among teenage girls led to a fight involving nearly a dozen students and prompted a lockdown at a suburban Atlanta high school.

Clayton County schools spokeswoman Vicki Gavalas says it happened at Charles Drew High School in Riverdale Tuesday.

Gavalas says one of the parents at the meeting instigated a fight between her daughter and another student afterward. That escalated into a fight involving 11 students. Gavalas says administrators are still restricting students’ movement throughout campus.

Gavalas says the students and the woman who instigated the fight have been arrested. Details on their charges and the ages of the people who were involved weren’t immediately available.
