The fight, witnessed by more than 100 students, occurred at Arsenal Tech High School, WXIN reported.

Authorities said no weapons were involved during the fight, which began inside the school’s cafeteria and spilled out into the courtyard, the Star reported.

At least seven people were injured and three were taken to the hospital, the newspaper reported. The students arrested were charged with disorderly conduct, the Star reported.

At least one officer used pepper spray to control the crowds, the newspaper reported.

"This is what happens when you put 600 more students on a campus this big. You mix multiple gangs," Merry Juerling, a parent of one of the students, told WXIN. "It is clear they are setting this place up to fail. When you mix 600 new students and multiple gangs this is going to happen and I’m not OK that my child is not safe."
