Twelve students from Martin Luther King High School were suspended for three to 10 days after a brawl inside the Stenton Avenue school that was captured on cellphone video last Wednesday, according to a report from NewsWorks content partner NBC10.

MLK Principal William Wade told NBC10 that the students involved in the fight were recent transfers to the West Oak Lane school and “when the suspended students return to school, they’ll attend evening mentoring sessions and sign a behavior contract.”

More details are available on NBC10’s report.
