LAS VEGAS -- School violence is an epidemic that won't quit.
Earlier this month, a student from O'Callaghan Middle School was taken to the hospital after a fight in the lunchroom.
O'Callaghan is near two other schools with some of the highest number of suspensions, expulsions and violence to students.
Harney, O'Callaghan and Bailey middle schools are within a five mile radius of each other, and according to the Department of Education, they happen to have a problem with violence.
"There is a lot of different ones. There are gangs. There are a bunch of people that do drugs and all that," 13-year-old middle school student Tyler Hamman said.
Tyler was recently kicked out of school. His mom Brenda Wilson says it was because of drug paraphernalia.
"He brought a weed pipe to school, and he was expelled and had to go to continuation school," Wilson said.
