The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department says the fight started just before 8:30 p.m. on Sunday when Eaglecrest students were playing Rangeview High School students in a spring league basketball game.

Two adults were treated and released at The Medical Center of Aurora. A third adult and a juvenile did not require medical attention.

The sheriff’s department says two people were arrested and both claimed they were members of a gang. One is 19 and the other is a juvenile.

Authorities say both have been released but charges are pending.
