FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WJZ) — A massive fight erupts inside a Prince George’s County high school. Police blame the tension on the recent murder of a 16-year-old student.

Adam May reports on the rash of violence in that county.

Friends called him Spike–16-year-old Marcus Jones–a well-liked student gunned down Saturday night leaving a birthday party.

“The house party was reportedly very well supervised. There were several adults there, and no reported problems that occurred inside the party or during the party itself,” a police officer said.

The murder led to at least two fights Monday involving multiple students at Friendly High School in Prince George’s County.

“Everybody’s enraged. Girls are crying, boys are mad,” student Anthony Dudley said.

Anthony Dudley, 17, was among five arrested when police tried to take control.

“Our hearts are just broken from this,” said Latrese Robinson, the victim’s cousin.

Marcus Jones is the fourth student in Prince  George’s County murdered this year.

“To hear what happened at the school, it was devastating because we don’t need any more tragedies coming up out with this incident,” Robinson said.

So far, only one of the four student murders have been solved. Police say that one was gang-related.
