ST. CHARLES (KMOV) – Six people are in custody after a group of adults and juveniles ran into a St. Charles school and began fighting with students on Friday.

Authorities say the group ran into St. Charles West High School around 2:30 p.m., then began fighting with high school students. Officials said the group was not affiliated with the school.

Officials said two teachers were injured while trying to break up the fight.

"At some time an altercation occurred, during the altercation a couple of the faculty or staff were assaulted as they tried to de-escalate the altercation," said Erik Lawrenz of the St. Charles Police.

Four adults and two juveniles were taken into custody, though it was not known how they were involved. One of the juveniles was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Police are still trying to determine why the people came to the school, and what started the fight. Authorities also say dismissal is the prime time for anyone to enter the building.

"The doors are open so it's not like the school was locked, and they gained entry that way, but the doors were actually unlocked," Lawrenz said.

Authorities say charges may be filed over the weekend.
