What really happened?
About 25 students were admitted after Police allegedly open fire on them while they were protesting frequent crashes of pedestrians in front of the school.
The victims were said to be part of a group of students who blocked the Abrepo Junction-Barekese road during the protest.
The angry students had massed up on the road in protest, as they called for the construction of speed ramps on that section of the road.
Meanwhile, all the students have been discharged and calm has returned to the school, making way for academic activities to proceed.
