Published

on

At least 9 students of Georgia High School have been arrested and charged with murder following the murder of an 18-year-old who died from stab wounds.

What started as a fist fight between two girls over a boy and emboldened by bystanders snowballed into a free-for-all in a residential street.

Others joined the fight wielding bats, pipes and fists as the fight became rowdy.

Nine people, including six high school students, have now been charged with murder by the sheriff in Richmond County.
