Two Teens Arrested After Gunshot Near Las Vegas School

Two teens were arrested and an elementary school was locked down for several minutes after a shot was fired during a fight near the campus, authorities said.

No one was hurt by the gunshot, which police said was fired into the air about 2:10 p.m. Tuesday outside Hewetson Elementary School
east of downtown Las Vegas.

About seven students believed to be 13 to 16 years old from other schools were involved in the scuffle near Bonanza Road and Bruce Street, and the two students at the center of the confrontation were detained, said Officer Jose Montoya, a Las Vegas police spokesman.

Names were not made public.

The scuffle appeared to have stemmed from a dispute during the last school year, Clark County school police Lt. Ken Young said.

Classes resumed on Monday.

A gun was not recovered, authorities said.
