RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Richmond Police recovered a weapon following a fight at John Marshall High School. Police said they responded to the school Friday morning for a report of "shots fired," however no gun was fired in the fight they later updated.

Richmond Police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said the fight started inside the school and later moved outside. She said one of the students involved in the fight was carrying a weapon.

Police chased down and arrested the suspect, a Performance Learning Center (PLC) student, at a nearby YMCA. The bus to the PLC leaves from John Marshall High School.

The Richmond high school was placed on a code red lock down while police investigated the situation. That lock down has since been lifted.
