Albany -- Dougherty County School Police charged 11-students in connection with suspected gang related violence at Dougherty High School this week.

 Ten are juveniles. One is 19-years old. They're charged with loitering in school safety zones and disrupting public schools.  Four of the suspects are also charged with simple battery for fights that broke out in the parking lots and roads near Dougherty High Tuesday and Wednesday.

Seven of the students go to Dougherty Middle but came to the High School for the fights.

 School Officials say no more trouble was reported Thursday or Friday, and parents should not worry. Public Information Director R.D. Harter said "those things happen sometime. But I think we dealt swiftly to make sure safety is preserved in our schools."

Police haven't filed gang charges in the fights, but they are still investigating. The students will also have to face school tribunals and could be suspended for ten days.
