JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Areas of south Jackson, including Forest Hill High School, experienced a power outage on Thursday afternoon. 

As a result, JPS says that several emergency responders were dispatched to the school. School officials say that just before the power outage, a fight broke out between students, but was quickly resolved. JPS claims that the situation stemmed from a dispute this past weekend.

JPS officials say the students involved will face the appropriate disciplinary action outlined by the Code of Conduct.

Police say there was no gun involved. Rumors that a gun was on campus started after multiple calls to 911 were made and calls to local media outlets. 

Parents of the school were notified by the District’s phone messaging system of the emergency.
