VIDEO: Cafeteria brawl breaks out at Central High School in Md.

- A brutal fight at a high school in Prince George’s County put three students in the hospital on Friday.

The lunch room brawl at Central High School was caught on camera and shows a large number of students attacking each other as three adults try to break it up.

A spokesperson for Prince George's County Public Schools said a group of African-American students assaulted a group of Hispanic students.

Spokesperson Raven Hill told FOX 5 that the principal is working with the school district's diversity officer to bring students together and "developing a plan of action that addresses students and parents' safety concerns and encourages students to celebrate cultural differences in the wake of this incident."

Hill said all students were part of an assembly Monday in response to what happened and that the three students hospitalized have now been released.

Prince George's County police said the school resource officer called for backup after the fight started and there were no arrests.

The school district said students were punished according to school guidelines.

FOX 5 spoke to two students who said they heard at the assembly that the aggressors in the fight have been expelled. They also said they don't think there is a racial divide at their school and they believe there were other issues that prompted the fight.
