NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A 16-year-old was arrested for loitering on campus with a weapon ahead of an intended fight with a middle school student, according to Clark County School District and North Las Vegas police.
According to authorities, officers were called to Marvin M. Sedway Middle School, located near West Gowan Road and Revere Street, around 3:30 p.m. A fight was reported between a middle school student and a high school student.
