An 18-year-old man was in surgery Friday night after an afternoon fight outside an Anne Arundel County high school, police said.
Shortly after 2 p.m., police found the man on the ground across the street from Broadneck Senior High School in Cape St. Claire, according to a statement from Anne Arundel County Police. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with severe injuries that are not life-threatening.
According to police, after school was dismissed, the 18-year-old approached a 15-year-old male student he knew. They started to fight in the 900 block of Chestnut Tree Drive, off the school's property.
The 15-year-old hit the 18-year-old on the right side of his face during the altercation.
No charges have been filed, police said, but the investigation is continuing. Witnesses are being interviewed.
