City School officials release a statement and say they’re investigating the video of a boy getting jumped by multiple students in the bathroom.
Baltimore City Schools say they’re aware of the video of a boy getting jumped at Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy West on Harlem Avenue.
School officials say they’re working to identify each student seen in the video.
The students at the beginning of their video jumped the boy because he allegedly mocked their gang called “Neighborhood.”
Some of the children in the video can be seen with gang-affiliated flags/bandanas.
About 4-5 students jumped the boy simultaneously after removing his glasses.
Baltimore City School Officials released a statement saying:
“Yesterday, a student was assaulted by several other students at Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy West. Students involved in the incident are being identified. Appropriate action will be taken in accordance with City Schools’ Code of Conduct and the law. Today at Bluford Drew Jemison, school counselors, social workers, and psychologists were available for students and staff to address any questions and concerns they may have. School and district leaders have reached out to the student to provide any additional support that may be needed. We are committed to the safety and security of our students and staff and work hard every day to create positive and supportive environments for teaching and learning.”
