DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Public Schools police have detained 14 Henry Ford High School students who they say were involved in fights at the school.

An Education Achievement Authority school district spokesman tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1Bzcgra ) officers arrested four students who were at least 17 years old and detained 10 students who were younger than 17. The 10 younger students were taken to the police department, ticketed and released to their parents.

No serious injuries were reported. The spokesman says no weapons were used.

It's unclear what caused the fighting. The EAA's interim chancellor referenced gang violence in a statement to the newspaper.

The state's turnaround district for low-performing public schools contracts with Detroit Public Schools police to provide some services and uses a private security firm. Detroit Police Department officers also responded.
