The first week of school in Antigua was marred by a violent altercation outside the Little Canton Supermarket on Independence Avenue involving students from Ottos Comprehensive School (OCS).
Approximately 50 students gathered after an early dismissal for a staff meeting, turning to violence outside the popular supermarket.
Eyewitnesses reported the use of objects such as scissors, resulting in injuries, including a boy with a gash over his eye and another with multiple stab wounds, despite their young age, some as young as 13.
Concerns rise over a potential resurgence in youth-on-youth violence, with prior incidents and recent viral videos highlighting the issue.
Police responded swiftly to the altercation, with at least four students taken into custody while others fled.
