Students at Carver School of Technology in Atlanta participated in what’s described as a five-round fight with punches being thrown by about 20 students at one point.
Two gay teens were targeted while the principal reportedly did nothing,
CBS 46 reports:
Tim Jefferson, 16, said it all started as he and a friend left their last class to go home.
During the fight, Jefferson said one student even pulled out a screwdriver and jammed it in his face, right next to his eye. Jefferson said he has several injuries.
“My face, my eye, my lip, on my back, my spine right in the middle, the back of my neck and I got hit in the back of my head,” Jefferson said.
Jefferson’s mom, Sabrina Giles, said this is about the eighth time this year that her son and his friend were attacked because of their sexuality so she’s transferring him to another school.
“I’m going to press charges. I want some justice. If God willing, I’m going to get justice and I want the boys who did this to go to jail,” Jefferson said.

Atlanta police charged four students in total for the fight.
Three of the perpetrators will face state charges of affray. The other student, Jefferson’s friend, who said he was bullied for being gay, will face a charge of disorderly conduct.
Jefferson’s mother is transferring her son to another school.
