Mass. high school boosts security after shooting

Disturbance on monday follows weekend shooting; security increased in response


BOSTON -- New Bedford high school is beefing up security Friday amid growing fears of violence.

The Standard Times reported that the move follows a disturbance on Monday which involved about 30 students and resulted in three arrests.

That incident was triggered by the deadly shooting of a city teen at a New Year's house party, police said.

School officials stressed that no weapons were found during this week's altercation.

The stepped up security is expected to include a significant police presence Friday morning.
