More Details Emerge in Preble HS Fight Investigation

Green Bay -

The fallout from a fight at Preble High School has school officials asking for extra security and taking measures to make sure parents and students feel safe.

We're learning more details about a fight that happened outside of Preble High School last week. The school's principal told parents in an email the driveway in front of the school will remain closed for at least the next two weeks and student safety is a top priority.

"We've requested that at least through the end of this week, and possibly longer, that we just want extra police presence so that the parents and students feel safe. There's not a police presence because of another incident. It's just out precautions," said Barbara Dorff of the Green Bay Area Public School District.

Officers say they will remain close by, as they to look into rumors and threats of violence.

"We get some of these rumors, some of these things so late in the day, we don't have time to track them down to verify them. So, based on that, we're going to take whatever precautions are necessary," said Green Bay Police Captain Bill Galvin.

Captain Galvin says about a dozen Preble students were involved in last week's fight and some of them don't attend school on a regular basis. Investigators say they now have more answers about whether the fight was gang related.

"Some of the people involved are certainly associated with a gang, but we don't believe it was because of any gang rivalry, or anything else like that," said Captain Galvin.

The police department says the fact anyone is associated with a gang in the Green Bay area is a problem... a problem they're still working to solve.
