UPDATED: Police Investigating Fight at Yorktown High School

(Updated at 9:10 p.m.) Arlington County police are investigating after a large fight at Yorktown High School yesterday.

The fight reportedly broke out Monday morning and resulted in multiple students suffering minor injuries. Parents later showed up at the high school, we’re told, after which police were called.

Police released few details in response to an inquiry from ARLnow.

“At approximately 12:04 p.m., police were dispatched to the 5200 block of Yorktown Boulevard for the late report of a fight on school property,” said ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage.

Medics were also dispatched to the school to treat the injured students.

Savage said police are investigating the incident.

Confirming a tip also received by ARLnow, Fox 5 reported Tuesday night that police were called by parents, not by the school, following the fight. The School Board voted in June to relocate School Resource Officers — sworn Arlington County police officers that were previously stationed at schools.

An Arlington Public Schools spokesman did not respond to a request for comment sent Monday afternoon.
