AURORA, Colo. – Several students at Central High School in Aurora were detained late Wednesday morning following an altercation in which a knife was used, a spokeswoman with the Aurora Police Department confirmed with Denver7.

The fight inside the school involved at least six presumed students, APD spokeswoman Crystal McCoy said. One of those students suffered a knife injury to his leg and at least another person had a superficial injury, she said.

Police are currently working to determine who the primary aggressor was in the altercation.

William Stuart, the interim principal, sent a letter to families letting them know the school was placed in a secure perimeter during the altercation as a precaution. He also reminded parents to remind children no weapons, even toy weapons, are allowed in school. Any student who brings a weapon will face "appropriate disciplinary action."
