UPDATE: On Oct. 10, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released a statement on the initial investigation of the massive brawl on Friday.
 
On Oct. 7 at about 10:56 p.m. officers responded to several reports of a large fight involving dozens of people at In-N-Out and Raising Cane's located in the 5600 block of Centennial Center Boulevard.
 
Upon arrival, officers found one female juvenile suffering from injuries sustained from the fight. She was transported to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
 
13 Action News spoke to the girl who said she was left unconscious on the floor of the In and Out . Today she had a black eye, strained neck and bruised ribs. 
 
Parents from the school are outraged by the fight. 
 
"Made no sense to see her sitting on the ground laid on the ground in a pool of blood," said a parent from Arbor View High School. 
 
Three other people, including two adult employees, transported themselves to local hospitals with varying degrees of injuries.
 
An investigation revealed that the fight started between rival students of Centennial High School and Arbor View High School after a football game between the two schools ended.
 
Some students said they didn't go to the game because they didn't think it would be safe. 
 
"It was an away game I knew something dangerous could happen because away game are never really safe," said Arbor View student Michaela Moore.
 
13 Action News spoke to students as they were leaving school today. One student at Centennial said the school did have more security on campus today. 
 
 "I could tell the security was more tough and they were patrolling around the school more," said student Chris Simon. 
 
The primary suspect or suspects who started the fight have not been identified. LVMPD is working with the Clark County School District Police Department to identify those responsible for the incident.
 
Officials are unsure of the exact number of victims, as many victims left the scene before making contact with officers.
 
Additional victims are urged to contact detectives with the Northwest Area Command Patrol Investigations Section at 702-828-8577.
 
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. Tips leading directly to an arrest or indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a cash reward.
