CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - School officials in Corpus Christi are beefing up security at five schools after several armed robberies near two schools and a fire set at another high school campus.

Corpus Christi Independent School District spokeswoman Lorette Williams says police patrols have been increased this week after three students at Ray High School and four from Carroll High School were robbed at gunpoint this week.

District Police Chief Kirby Warnke tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times (https://bit.ly/1IvcciY ) the heightened police presence will remain on a case by case basis at Ray, Carroll and three other high schools.

The most recent robbery occurred Thursday when a 17-year-old Carroll High School student was robbed of his shoes, phone, wallet and jewelry. Police have questioned at least two suspects.
