RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond Police have made one arrest after a fight between multiple students at George Wythe High School Friday morning.

Investigators would not provide details about the fight but says their investigation is ongoing and additional arrests may be made in relation to the incident.

Students tell CBS 6 the fight happened during a school pep rally Friday morning. A teacher says students were pepper sprayed to break up the fight.

There is no word if any students were injured during the altercation or what charged the teen who was arrested is facing.
