Fight at high school sends student to hospital; 17-year-old facing charges

A 17-year-old boy is facing charges after a fight at a Conception Bay South high school sent a fellow student to the hospital.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said the fight happened Wednesday during school hours at Queen Elizabeth Regional High in Foxtrap. An injured student was treated at hospital but will need followup dental work.

Police served the other student involved with a court appearance notice Thursday evening, with the accused released into the custody of his parents. He will be formally charged in court at a later date.
