It opens with three boys attacking a single student, punching and stomping on him until a school officer and other adults rush in to separate the teens. 

The boy who was getting beat gets up and suddenly pulls out a knife, scaring away onlookers.  

He then lounges at one of his attackers before one of the adults is able to intervene and grab the knife away from him. 

The adults appear to try and calm the teen down before he goes after one of the students being restrained on the ground. 

The security officer finally gets a hold of the boy as more adults rush in to get the situation under control and direct the students away from the scene.

According to Omaha police, two students suffered minor cuts and injuries in the altercation. 

In a letter to parents, school principal Darren Rasmussen wrote: ‘Staff and security immediately responded to de-escalate the situation. The incident was under control quickly, without the need to place the school in Hold or Secure. 

‘We continue to work with the families of the students involved, and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.’

The identity of the students involved in the fight has not been disclosed. 

Despite Rasmussen’s reassurance, parents and students in the district said the fight was not an outlier in the school, nor was it even the only brawl that took place that day.

LeeLynn Tuttle, who graduated from the high school in 2006, said she now regrets sending her daughter to the school following the latest fight. 

‘You know, it’s a little scary as a parent, you know, your kids going to school to be safe and learn things, and then you’re getting videos of kids getting cut,’ she told KETV

‘Like, I’m scared every day to send my daughter to school and that shouldn’t be a problem.’ 

Her daughter, Hailee Osborn, told the local outlet that before the fight in the hallway, ‘there was a fight in the gym before that.’ 

Amid the negative publicity for the high school, Rasmussen took to Twitter posting a message that read: ‘Don’t dwell on the one negative thing that happened at school today when there were hundreds of amazing things that happened as well.’
