Student David Sosa said it was a mess this morning. ”There were computers smashed, broken, some were missing over by the ROTC program there was a golf cart that was driven through the fence,” he said. 

School spokeswoman Nancy Wait says more than one person broke in overnight and used hammers to smash things. It's so bad 200 out of the schools 2500 students now have to work out of the gym and auditorium for a few days.
