From NBC12 News

HENRICO, VA (NBC12) - 14 Henrico officers made 14 arrests Saturday night in the parking lot of Highland Springs Elementary School.

Around 9:30 p.m. officers got a tip that a large group of people were forming on the school grounds for a fight.

When officers arrived the crowd scattered, but police were able to wrangle several suspects.

All were charged with trespassing on school property at night.

Police say a brick and a knife were found at the scene.

Police could not confirm if the gathering was gang related but say the competing factions were from Highland Springs and Varina.
