Waterloo East cancels all evening activities except for golf

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Waterloo East High School is canceling all evening activities except for Metro golf as a safety precaution after rumors of retaliatory violence started to spread.

One student is dead and two are injured after a fight at Exchange Park in Waterloo on Tuesday night. Some witnesses said the violence was gang related, and there's concern over further violence.

18-year-old Kevin Josue Garcia died at the scene. Waterloo Fire Rescue Paramedics transported two victims to Allen Hospital, 16-year-old Steven Lamont Perry II of 1217 Parker Street in Waterloo and 16-year-old Bryce Alexander Smith of 800 Dawson Street in Waterloo.

Perry remains hospitalized in stable condition and Smith was treated and released.

Students will be dismissed from school at the normal time, but all after school activities with the exception of Metro golf have been canceled.
