A letter from the school that went home to parents alleged that Cutchember was arguing with a 15-year-old student when he hit the victim over the head with the pan.

It’s not clear what started the altercation or where the frying pan even came from but the school said that campus security was able to intervene and break up the fight, FOX5 reported.

Students told the station that while the fight was going on someone pulled the fire alarm, ultimately evacuating all the students, but a spokesperson for the school told WUSA that two incidents were unrelated.
