Police arrested five students in connection with a fight at East Wake High School.
They also filed a juvenile petition for a suspect under the age of 16.
Zebulon Police arrested Khalil Breece-Melvin, 18, Sept. 27 with a warrant from the Wake County Sheriff’s Office. On Sept. 30, Demarcus Davis, 19, Bobby Turner, 18 and Nyheem Wiggins, 16 were also arrested as suspects in the Sept. 18 fight.
They were all charged with misdeameanor count of disorderly conduct in a school.
The sheriff’s office arrested Tremaine Deshon Jones, 20, of 4031 Northstone Drive in Raleigh immediately after the fight and charged him with second-degree trespassing.
At the time of Jones’ arrest, Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison it wasn’t clear whether Jones was part of the fight.
The suspects were identified through videos police were able to gather, Harrison said.
The arrest warrant for Breece-Melvin said the fight was between “two rival neighborhoods.”
The fight is still under investigation and right now, investigators “can’t substantiate” any rumors that the fight was related to gang activity, Harrison said.
He also said it doesn’t appear that investigators are looking for more suspects, but that could change as the investigation progresses.
The incident resulted in a wave of student withdrawals from class as the school community broadcasted its happening on social media.
On the day after the fight, the line in the main office to check out students wrapped around the office and into the hallway.
School officials said 545 students checked out early.
This charge is Breece-Melvin’s second charge of disorderly conduct in a school. In December 2013, he was charged with the same offense and simple affray. The location of that incident is not clear.
In July 2014, the court dropped charges against Breece-Melvin of cocaine possession and maintaining a dwelling for use, sale or storage of a controlled substance.
Wiggins has no past criminal record.
Records for Davis and Turner were not available.
