Nine students were arrested Thursday afternoon after a fight broke out at a southeast Las Vegas Valley high school.
The fight began about 2:15 p.m. inside Del Sol Academy of the Performing Arts, at 3100 E. Patrick Lane, Clark County School District police Sgt. Bryan Zink said. Nine students were arrested after the fight, which was still being investigated.
No injuries were reported, and there was no reports of weapons.
Investigators were told of a “rumored threat” circulating at the school around the time of the fight, but it appeared to be unsubstantiated Thursday afternoon, according to a message sent to parents from principal Greg Misle.
Extra police were on campus Thursday afternoon due to an “abundance of caution,” the message said. Metropolitan Police Department officers were helping school police investigate.
“All proper disciplinary actions are being followed by the school,” the message said.
Charges for the students have not been finalized, but Zink said they were arrested on suspicion of crimes including disorderly conduct and participating in a fight.
The students arrested were taken to the Juvenile Detention Center, Zink said. Further information was not immediately available.
