Guam - A riot that broke out Monday at George Washington High School resulted in the expulsion of two students. GW assistant principal for discipline Gaylene Cruz says a misunderstanding between two students at the school's volleyball court escalated during break time resulting in more students getting involved.

"We did an immediate lockdown," Cruz said. "We were able to get the individuals that were involved. There were no major injuries. We did have a student with a cut under his eye because of his glasses and another girl who tried to diffuse it got elbowed in her face and nothing major."

Seven students were involved in the fight and Cruz says staff members are on high alert around the campus.  This is the second riot of the year and the Attorney General's Office is expected to visit the school in February to talk about campus violence and bullying.
