Large fight in Longview sends 2 to hospital

Released by the Longview Police Department:

LONGVIEW, TX - On Friday December 11, 2009 at around 10:30 p.m., Longview Officers were dispatched to the parking lot of a grocery store at 3354 Gilmer Road for a report of a large fight. Multiple people called in to report the fight and stated that there were several different fights occurring in the parking lot, all involving "kids."

Over seven Longview officers responded and arrived to find a chaotic situation; with people and cars leaving in different directions. Officers stopped several of the cars and began to interview people at the scene to find out what had occurred. Witnesses and involved parties told officers that a group of high school aged students from Kilgore came to fight with a group of high school aged students from Spring Hill. The fight was previously arranged, with the two different groups agreeing to meet at the grocery store parking lot to engage in the physical altercation.

Involved parties told officers the altercation was based on a disagreement between a teenager from Spring Hill and a Kilgore teen, but the Spring Hill teen did not come to the arranged fight. Friends of the two teens then began to fight with each other and an 18-year-old Spring Hill High School student was taken to an area hospital by his friends. Officers at the scene cited a witness for consumption of alcohol by a minor.

Officers went to area hospitals and located the victim, who was being treated for non-life threatening injuries. Officers also located a second victim who had sustained minor injuries, not requiring treatment. Twenty-three witnesses and involved parties were interviewed by investigating officers and offense reports for aggravated assault, assault and criminal mischief were taken.

The incident has been assigned to the Longview Police Department Criminal Investigations Division and the cases are open and under investigation.

    A pair of wildlife enthusiasts made a stop in East Texas over the weekend, on June 19 they caught one of the biggest alligators found thus far in an Athens lake. But their hunting trip wasn’t all about the thrill, the roundup was to remove the gator from the site of a boy scout camp. "When it comes to Texas, warm water with woods in a pretty secluded area you're going to have alligators,” says wildlife expert Kyle Green.
