ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a dozen people have now been charged in a fight near an eastern Pennsylvania high school that left two youths with serious injuries.

Police say the 16-year-old victims suffered concussions, bruises and cuts after they were kicked, punched and pistol-whipped Tuesday afternoon near Dieruff High School in Allentown.

Investigators said the fight began with an argument in the lunchroom after one of the students threw something at another boy. After an argument, they agreed to meet in an alley to fight after school.

Police made seven arrests initially but said they recovered a cellphone showing five more people taking part in the assault.

Three adults and nine juveniles have been charged in Lehigh County with aggravated assault, conspiracy and riot. Two juveniles also face firearms charges.
