Multiple fights broke out on the Fremont High School campus on San Pedro Street around 11 a.m., with rocks and bottles being thrown, according the Los Angeles Police Department 77th Division. Officers who responded to the school put out a call for help and formed a scrimmage line outside the campus.

According to Los Angeles Unified School District school police, a demonstration on campus escalated into students leaving, which caused a disturbance. Students then began throwing stuff at officers, school police said. More than a dozen police units were seen parked outside the school.
