Michigan students join gun violence protest, leave classes

BEVERLY HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Students at schools throughout parts of Michigan joined others across the country by walking out of class to protest gun violence.

More than 100 Birmingham Groves High School students filed Wednesday morning onto the football field of the school in Beverly Hills where a rally was held.

The national walkouts mark the biggest demonstration yet of student activism emerging from last month’s massacre of 17 people by an assault rifle-wielding former student at a Florida high school.

Groves freshman Leticia (luh-TEE’-see-uh) Carroll helped organize the walkout at her school and said answers to gun violence are needed.

Students at North Farmington High School, northwest of Detroit, walked from their classrooms Wednesday into a gym. Fordson High students in Dearborn huddled together outside their school.
