Over the past week, the district has also addressed the string of fights happening at Canutillo High School. Videos of those fights have gone viral on social media. Six people were arrested Wednesday as the result of an investigation into those fights. The El Paso Police Department’s Gang Unit was called in to help with the investigation.

“The three individuals charged with state felony charges were booked in the El Paso County Jail and given a $15,000 bond,” the district said in a statement. “More arrests are expected this week in connection with the fights.”

Of those three people now facing felony charges, one is a child and the other two are adults. They were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and/or assault, according to district officials. The other three people, all children, are now facing misdemeanor assault charges.
