Officials in Miami-Dade County have arrested three adults who were reportedly involved in a fight on the campus of a high school.

The incident was reported on Tuesday at the Miami Central High School campus.

22-year-old David Peak, 18-year-old Laquayle Peak, 23-year-old Tranesha Housen,  and a fourth person who was not identified, were arrested after they allegedly trespassed onto the school’s campus and attacked four students.

The fight prompted a code red lockdown.

David was said to have suffered injures to his forehead, lips, and knees during the incident and was taken to an area hospital for treatment before being transported to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

He is facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution.

Laquayle is facing charges of first-degree felony burglary with assault or battery, trespassing on school grounds, affray, and interference with an educational institution. Her bond was set at $15,000 with the option of an alternative bond of $1,500 with house arrest.

Charges against Housen and the fourth defendant were not made public.

On Wednesday, parents told a judge that the altercation was the result of the school administrator’s inaction to solve an ongoing dispute between teens at the school.
