The south campus of the lycÃ©e in the canton of Lyon remains an active investigation scene after the fight, the weapons recovered
WESTERN SPRINGS, Illinois – A suburban high school abruptly canceled its come-home party on Saturday due to police activity at the school. Two people are in police custody.
A letter to the families of students at LycÃ©e Canton de Lyon said police activity resulted from a brawl during the football game against Proviso West earlier on Saturday.
WGN News has learned that the fight erupted on the pitch after this match and that a few people from the stands joined the fight.
Western Springs Police responded to reports of the scuffle as well as a report of a weapon at the school’s south campus, located in Western Springs, according to the letter.
Police searched and found two firearms inside an unoccupied vehicle in the South Campus parking lot.
Two unarmed men were arrested, according to the letter and the school’s website.
No injuries were reported.
The south campus and its surroundings remain an active scene of investigation.
Additional officers are also in the area.
The Western Springs Police Department said it does not believe there is an immediate or apparent threat to the community.
“After consulting with the Western Springs Police Department, LTHS is canceling tonight’s homecoming dance scheduled to take place at the South Campus,” the letter reads. “We will do everything possible to reschedule our prom and communicate an update to our community in the coming week.”
