Brawl erupts at Ohio kindergarten graduation, 8 arrested

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police were called to Michael R. White Elementary School on Cleveland’s east side Friday morning after someone reported shots fired.
After arriving at the scene, officers learned no shots had been fired.
According to Commander Wayne Drummond, a riot broke out following a kindergarten promotional ceremony.
“No gun, shots fired,” Drummond said.

Six adults and two teenagers were arrested, Drummond said. All of those arrested were taken to jail, and they face charges of aggravated rioting. They are expected to be in court sometime next week.
“It’s a shame — something like this would happen at a promotional ceremony for young kids. When people act like this, they are going to jail,” Drummond said.
According to Drummond, a hammer and a club were confiscated at the scene.
No one was injured.
Roseann Canfora, the district communications officer for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, said the fight took place outside of the school.
The juveniles involved were not Michael R. White students, Canfora also said, citing reports.
The school is located on East 92nd Street near Pierpont Avenue.
Several parents and grandparents showed up at the school to get their children after they learned police were at the building.
“I came up here to get my grand-kids,” said Dwayne Harris. “I was concerned because there is so much going on at the schools today you know, I was really concerned.”
Johnson Jones, who picked up his granddaughter, agreed.
“What a sad way to end the ceremony for such a great occasion, but I told my grand-daughter don’t hold her head down, she has a lot to be proud of.”
