Multiple arrests made after shots fired near Scott High School

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A total of 10 students were arrested after two fights broke out, leading to shots fired outside of Scott High School on Tuesday.

At around 1:36 p.m., a group of students were found fighting inside of the building. Six students were arrested due to this initial fight.

At around 2:50 p.m., just after the school's dismissal, another fight broke out in front of the school on Collingwood at Machen.

A shot was then fired, but no victim was found.

The shooter fled in a gray Pontiac Grand Am, which was later located empty.

"School Resource Officers pursued the suspect but once the suspect got into a vehicle, at that time, we weren't able to make contact with that vehicle," said Lt. Kevan Toney with TPD. "Anytime we have shots fired whether it's a house struck or shots fired into the air, that's something we're going to take seriously."

The shooter is not being identified at this time.

However, what we do know is that a 16-year-old was charged with Improper Discharge of a Firearm in a school safety zone.

We also know that two students and two juveniles were arrested after the second incident.

No injuries have been reported.

Not only does TPS have safety measures for when students are in the building, but off school property; And Tuesday afternoon was proof this measure could have saved a life.

"We would go into a lockdown where no one leaves the building, no one gets into the building and we work simultaneously with our security department and the Toledo Police Department," said Linda D. Meyers, a transformational leader at TPS.

Meyers added that community officers are usually driving around the area once school starts and when it ends.

They also like to keep parents in the loop if they notice students venturing in areas off school property where they shouldn't be going.

This investigation is ongoing.
