LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Thousands of students across Arkansas participated in a the nationwide student walkout to protest gun violence.
In Central Arkansas, the largest walkout appeared to be at Little Rock's Central High where some 2,000 students walked out of class and gathered on the front lawn of the school.
While a small group of students walked out at Little Rock's Hall High School, students at Little Rock Mills gathered for an optional assembly focused on school safety.

Outside of Central Arkansas, one of the state's larger protests happened in Bentonville. Earlier this week, students were told they'd receive detention if they participated.
