High school students supposedly protesting for gun control to ensure school safety resorted to violence and vandalism at an Antioch, Tennessee high school Wednesday.

As local NBC station WSMV reports, videos of the rampage have surfaced on social media:

“While most Mid-state student walk-outs advocating for gun policy changes were peaceful and productive, videos have surfaced on social media of some Mid-state students perpetrating violence. 

“At Antioch High School, social media videos captured a brawl inside the school. Outside, videos show students can be seen tearing down an American flag.”

A Metro Schools spokesperson acknowledged the violence and destructiveness of those protesting for gun control:

“Unfortunately, some students on our Antioch campus today chose to protest in ways that significantly disrupted school operations and threatened the safety and order for other students and staff within our school.”
