7 arrested after Lincoln High lockdown

Three separate fights caused Lincoln High School to be locked down for 45 minutes today.

City police arrested seven students, said Fernando Gallard, a spokesman for the Philadelphia School District.

The lockdown started at 1:15 and was lifted at about 2 p.m., Gallard said.

"At this point, the school is looking into what started the fights," he said.

Lincoln, on Ryan Avenue in the Northeast, has about 1,800 students.
