The incident happened at Kenwood Elementary School on February 10.
“Some students who tried to avoid the situation were chased, escorted, dragged, or carried on the playground,” the report said, prompting white students to chant “Black Lives Matter.” .” WDTN reports that “one of the suspects struck a student in the head” and that black students also recorded white students.
