Three teens were arrested at a high school in Hyattsville, Maryland, Wednesday after a fight broke out between gang members, police say.

Hyattsville Police say a 16-year-old student who is a member of MS-13 got into a fight with a 19-year-old student who is a member of the 18th Street gang at Northwestern High School.

During the fight in a stairwell, the 16-year-old pulled out a sharp object and swung it at the 19-year-old, police said.

Officers and school security responded and found both teens with minor cuts.

They were taken to local hospitals and later released, police said.

The 16-year-old student and two other students, ages 14 and 15, are in police custody. Police are not releasing their identities because they are juveniles.

Criminal charges are pending against the three teens, police said.
