(Tooele-AP) -- Six Tooele High School students are on suspension pending investigation of videotaped sexual misconduct with a girl allegedly involving members of the baseball team.

The students were suspended Friday.

The sexual activity allegedly occurred while 16 Tooele High players, three coaches and some parents were staying at a hotel in Washington City, outside of St. George, during a March baseball tournament.

Police Chief Ron Kirby says the school district gave the videotape containing "disturbing images" to police. Police say the girl is a high-school minor, but didn't say which high school.

The district did not say how it obtained the videotape, and Kirby said he didn't know.

Kirby says police will forward their report to Washington County, where the bulk of the investigation likely will be completed.
