Samantha Hayes ReportingA vicious weekend fight led to heavy police presence at Murray High School. Tonight authorities say the man they thought may be planning retaliation is behind bars.

The school feels the situation is over and done with, but police are still investigating the fight and parents have a lot of questions. Extra police officers are no longer patrolling Murray High School now that Kenneth Fehrmann turned himself over to police.

Investigators worried Fehrmann might show up armed on school grounds. Police say he stole two high powered rifles from the owner of the store where he worked after his brother was involved in a fight Friday afternoon.

Martha Kupferschmidt, Student Services: "Began with two boys. Two students could not settle it at school so they thought they would settle it after school."

The fight happened on a rugby field off school property. Murray High School says eight students were suspended for fighting, 12 more students suspended for coming over to watch.

Martha Kupferschmidt, Student Services: “In this case the students involved in the physical altercation are suspended for three days, the students involved as spectators for one day."

A relative of one of the boys in the fight says many of them were hurt. "One of them had a black eye; couple of them had a couple of good bruises and also had to be taken to the hospital."

Investigators have identified several of the boys involved in the fight. Charges have been filed against at least three of them ranging from assault to disorderly conduct.

Kenneth Fehrmann is facing 3rd degree burglary charges and 2nd degree theft of a firearm.
