Evanston police say officers were called twice Thursday morning to Haven Middle School for incidents that sent a staff member to Evanston Hospital and a student to the police station.
Cmdr. Ryan Glew says the first call came at 9:20 a.m. in response to “an altercation in a hallway.”
He says a female staff member was knocked over by participants in the altercation, but was not targeted in the incident.
Glew says she was transported to Evanston Hospital by the Evanston Fire Department with what are believed to be minor neck and head injuries.
Then at 11:50 a.m., Glew says, Fire Department paramedics were attending to a male student with a possible medical issue when another male student interfered with their work.
Glew says the interfering student was transported to the police station and charges against him are pending further investigation.
There were no arrests in the first incident, Glew says, and the school will handle it internally.
He says both incidents are still under investigation and that at one point during the morning the school issued a soft lockdown. He added that at this point it does not appear any weapons were involved in either incident.
