Five Oklahoma City high school students were thrown in jail after a brutal schoolyard fight was caught on video and posted to social media on Tuesday, police said.
In the video, 19-year old Hugo Marquez can be seen stepping in front of another Capitol Hill high school student, who is gearing up to throw a punch.
As the student lands a right hook on the side of Marquez’s face, the victim is instantly knocked out and falls to the ground.
Moments later, a student who police identified as 16-year-old Jalen Hooks can be seen walking up to the unconscious Marquez and stomping him in the face.

A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City police department told Daily Mail Online that Hooks was arrested on Wednesday on felony assault charges. The student who punched Marquez was arrested as a juvenile and accused of misdemeanor assault and battery.
After the assault on Marquez, several teachers at Capitol Hill high school were allegedly assaulted and threatened by students.
One student was arrested as a juvenile on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting a school official, according to police.
After threats were allegedly made against teachers, two other teenagers were arrested on felony charges, police said.
Channing Caldwell, 17, was arrested for allegedly making verbal threats against a teacher, police said.
Juan Reyes, 17, allegedly went on social media after the fight and threatened violence against the school and teachers, according to Oklahoma City police.
Police told Daily Mail Online they believe the fight had its origins in a gang feud.
‘We have information leading us to believe the people arrested have gang affiliations,’ Captain Paco Balderrama of the Oklahoma City police department said.
The captain said the five jailed students are believed to be members of two separate gangs.
