CHICAGO — Five students have been arrested for fighting at a Chicago high school less than a month after an honor student was killed in a brutal beating recorded in a cell phone video camera.

Police say four Christian Fenger Academy High School students are charged with reckless conduct and one is charged with aggravated assault. All are male juveniles. Police did not know where they were being held late Thursday.

Tensions between students at the school are blamed for the death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert. He was beaten to death with wooden boards during a street brawl after school on Sept. 24.

Three teens have been charged with the slaying.
