LYNDHURST, Ohio — The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools released a statement Wednesday after shots were fired in the Brush High School parking lot Tuesday night.

The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. while a basketball game was underway in the gym.

No one was hurt.

The statement read:

“The swift action of district security officials and the City of Lyndhurst Police Department kept spectators safe and secure in response to gun shots that were fired in the parking lot last night following a boys varsity basketball game at Brush High School against visiting Garfield Heights High School. Already on the scene as part of the district’s security policy for such events, officials were able to promptly apprehend two male juveniles, and also to recover the suspected handgun. No known injuries have been reported and the suspects who were taken into custody have no affiliation with either school district participating in last night’s contest. School resumed under a normal schedule on Wednesday morning, and the matter is now under investigation and has been turned over to local law enforcement agencies.

 

“The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools would like to thank the City of Lyndhurst Police Department and the security staff at Brush High School for their timely response and for strictly following the district’s existing Emergency Action Plan protocol.”

 

Police also said five bullet casings were recovered at the scene.

    You people, they, jungle, planet of the apes….who are you referring too?? Nothing in this article stated that the juveniles were black. You really shouldn’t jump to conclusions.

      You are the only one that referenced color. But you would have known right away if they were white suspects because the article would have been glad to announce that.

        Color was referenced in some of the post and I have the ability to “read between the lines” in what was meant in other post. The type of people who usually post on here are racist. If you have an issue with other races maybe you should exclude yourself from society and live on an island.
        Regardless of the color of the perpetrators, the violence in the SEL neighborhood is at an all-time high. And I for one believe it is a social problem and not a race problem. There is just as much violence going on in other suburban neighborhoods that are predominantly white.

      Yeah, it doesn’t matter that too many BLACKS commit too many crimes while the racially righteous make too many excuses for the “anointed minority” …….. GET REAL …… the only real ignorance here is on display with your self serving, pretentious nonsense ……. take it down the street!
