"Obviously it was childish," Clark said. "Most of the kids are like in 10th and 11th grade. It started with young ladies having some type of issue, then it spread to the guys, so something very small and trivial ultimately ended up with this young lady being killed."

The two warring groups - a mix of about 20 to 30 people, students from the high school and nonstudents, according to Clark - decided to meet at Broad and Olney after school Monday to fight.

Monday's shooting was the second instance of gun violence to scar the school, on Old York Road near Duncannon Avenue in Logan, in recent memory. In January, two students were wounded in the school's gym when a student who had brought a gun into the school fired it accidentally.
