A high school student in Killeen created a post encouraging students to “fight on sight” on Friday.

Killeen Independent School District officials confirmed Monday that a student created the Instagram post; however, they refused to identify the student and what school he or she attends.

In a statement, the district did say: “Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken in accordance with state law, board policy and the Killeen Independent School District’s student code of conduct.”

The social media threat was posted on Instagram on Wednesday encouraging KISD high school students to fight each other during the last two weeks of the school year.

One fight on high school campuses was confirmed by Killeen ISD officials since Wednesday. They did not say where the fight occurred.

KISD had problems with fights earlier in the school year.

In October, the Herald received multiple complaints about fights happening across the district — on campus and off.

The fights usually involved a larger group of students fighting a smaller group of students, often characterized as jumping.

Concern from the community prompted a KISD/KPD town hall meeting to address the issue. More than 185 people attended.
