Los Angeles Unified School District officials say two students have been injured and three arrested in a racially motivated brawl that erupted on a high school courtyard.
District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says about 30 students at Carson High School were involved in the fight that broke out about 10am on Wednesday (local time) while students were on recess.
Carazo says the brawl was racially motivated between black and Latino students.
Conditions of the injured students are not immediately available.
The school is on modified lockdown, meaning students can eat lunch and use restrooms but otherwise must remain in class.
Class dismissal is expected as usual.
Los Angeles school police and the county Sheriff's Department are investigating.
