8 students suspended after brutal beating

WILSON, AR (KAIT)-  A Rivercrest High School student was taken to the hospital from school last Tuesday after several other students reportedly knocked him unconscious in an attack that was possibly gang related.

Authorities didn't release the name of the eighth grade student. He had injuries to his face and body, and eventually had to have nose surgery. He is now out of the hospital.
     
Eight students have been suspended and the school district is considering expulsion for some.
     
Police are investigating, but so far, no arrests have been made.
