Gang Concerns At High School

The colors some students are wearing at one high school are causing some concern.

The Woodford County High School principal sent a letter home to parents about some believed-to-be gang members at school, using their clothes to cause trouble.

The principal says he's told those students not to wear North Carolina blue or black and gold, which happen to be the school's colors.

But he says other students shouldn't worry about this color concern.

"The only reason the student would be addressed about this is if it were in connection of a violation of the code of conduct. There shouldn't be concern, we're not trying to make an issue with them," said Rob Akers, the principal of WCHS.

The principal says the blue represented the "Two Two Boys" gang and the black and gold stood for "The Latin Kings."
