Students in a Las Cruces, New Mexico, high school classroom got a scare today.
Authorities say three students dressed in black and wearing ski masks burst into the classroom today, wielding a baseball bat, tire
iron and metal rod.
Police say the trio were apparently looking for another student in a gang-related attack.
Police say none of the 26 students in the algebra class at Mayfield High School was injured.
All three suspects were apprehended. The student the trio was looking for was not in the classroom at the time of the attack.
The school remained open for the remainder of the day.
