Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The mother of a student who was badly injured in a fight at Canyon Springs High School is speaking out.
A group of young men blended in with seniors, gathered for a breakfast Friday morning, and sparked a fight that spilled into the parking lot and a playing field.
Three students were badly hurt, including Georgina Parra-Ureno's son. He was robbed, pistol-whipped and left with severe head injuries.
Parra-Ureno said the school did not have adequate security for the event, "There was no visible supervision at all. Students were just walking in. No one was checking for ID. No one was asking them if they even needed to be there."
Canyon Canyon Springs did have increased school police presence on campus on Monday.
Police have arrested two 18-year-olds and a juvenile CCSD student in connection with Friday's fight.
They are still looking for two more suspects, including another student.
