RALEIGH, N.C. — Parents of students at Enloe High School were expecting an electronic letter Thursday evening, detailing a morning fight at the school.

According to the letter, "About 15 students were involved in an altercation outside the school building entryway." Raleigh Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said officers estimated that 30 students either were involved in the fight or were encouraging the fighters.

The school resource officer assigned to Enloe, school security personnel and additional Raleigh police controlled the fray. The school was never locked down.

Two students were treated for cuts.

Raleigh police arrested six of those involved and charged each with assault. Two were also charged with possession of marijuana.

Sughrue said he expected an as-yet-undetermined number of juveniles to be charged for their roles in the fight.

The investigation was continuing.
