MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio -- Surveillance video released Wednesday shows how fights unfolded during a kindergarten graduation ceremony at North Elementary School in Mount Healthy on Monday.
Police say Raymond Walker, 33, started the fight. Walker turned himself in Thursday.
"It was horrible," parent Kim Calai said. "I'm standing there, and all of a sudden this rush of people throwing punches is coming at me."
Calai's son was graduating in the ceremony when the fight broke out. She said the children on stage witnessed violence between several parents.
