Deputies search for suspects in beating near Cordova High

A 17-year-old Cordova High School student was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries this afternoon following a fight with rival gang members in front of the school.

Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman Officer Jason Ramos said a call was received about 3:20 p.m. from a woman who said a teen had been beaten by individuals with a baseball bat and the assailants had fled.

Ramos said the 17-year-old told deputies that he brought the bat to school because he feared he would be jumped by rival gang members. Two members of the rival gang confronted him after school, wrested the bat from him and stuck him in the arm and hip before running off toward Hagan Community Park.

The youth was taken to a hospital for treatment. In an interview with deputies, he identified one of the assailants as a former Cordova High School student, Ramos said.

Deputies searched the park and areas near the American River. Ramos said they detained one individual near the scene of the attack, but he was released after witnesses were unable to identify him as one of the assailants.
