Less than a week after a staffer was knocked unconscious at Bartram High School, the school was locked down as a result of a student fight.

The incident occurred around noon, said Fernando Gallard, district spokesman.

Six students are in custody after the fight, which happened in the cafeteria.

One school police officer was injured as he attempted to break up the fight, but the officer was not taken to the hospital..

One male student suffered scratches during the altercation.

The reason for the fight was not immediately clear, Gallard said.
