Dunbar update

In the article about Hart below reference is made to 19 girls being arrested at Dunbar High School, apparently for incidents related to fighting.  I haven't been able to find any reports of this in the news.  Any readers have any more information?

Also, over the weekend a Dunbar student was fatally shot.
A 15-year-old was shot and fatally wounded last week outside his home in Northeast Washington, D.C. police said. Ladonta Longshore, a ninth-grader at Dunbar High School, was one of the youngest people killed in the city this year.

Police said he was found about 10:30 p.m. Monday behind his apartment building in the 1200 block of Brentwood Road NE, south of Rhode Island Avenue and east of the Rhode Island Avenue Metro stop.

He died Wednesday at a hospital, and the shooting is under investigation, police said.
