Sacramento Police have arrested two people for starting a fist fight at Inderkum High School that resulted in a brief lockdown of the campus.

At about 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11 two former Inderkum students reportedly came onto the campus and started a fight with a student currently enrolled at the school, according to police Sgt. Norm Leong. The fight was evidently the result of an ongoing dispute of unknown origin.

The male student, a 15-year-old sophmore, may have blacked out temporarily after being hit and was taken to an area hospital as a precautionary measure, Leong said.

A hall monitor was reportedly hit in the shoulder when she tried to stop the fight, Leong said. 

The extent of any injuries to the student and school employee was unknown, but were described by police as not being life threatening.

Police arrested Annalyshia Taylor, 18, and Dapree Johnson-Stowers, 19, on suspicion of felony battery. Johnson-Stowers is being held in Sacramento County Jail with bail set at $50,000 and is expected to appear in court tomorrow Dec. 13. Taylor was booked and released.

The decision to lock down the school between the students’ two lunch periods was made by school site administration and was lifted after about 16 minutes.

“The lockdown was discontinued after administration and law enforcement determined that all students were safe,” Principal George Tapanes said in a voice message to students’ homes. “Although we do not anticipate any further incidents, we will be increasing security presence on campus through winter break.”
