The incident prompted officials to issue a “Code Red” alert for the high school and neighboring Woodstock Middle School.

The call came to authorities about 1:18 p.m., Sheriff Frank Reynolds said. A fight started in a bathroom and spilled into the hallway.

Officials arrested the suspect, who ran from the school, while he walked near his home.
