Fight involving multiple students at Green Valley High draws police

Updated August 23, 2021 - 5:05 pm

A fight involving multiple students broke out Monday at Green Valley High School in Henderson and two people were arrested, but it was not clear if there were any injuries.

Clark County School District Police Department spokesman Lt. Bryan Zink said the incident was a fight. He later said two juveniles were arrested, but didn’t have further details.

At least two ambulances were seen outside the school along with multiple police vehicles.

Green Valley High Principal Kent Roberts said in an email to students and parents that reports of a fight between “multiple students” in the cafeteria drew the law enforcement response.

“You may have heard rumors about a weapon being used or discharged during the event, however, that information is false,” he said. “The situation is controlled and classes are taking place at normal at this time.”
