Teens detained in possible gang-related confrontation at Wa-Hi


WALLA WALLA -- Two teens were taken to the Juvenile Justice Center after a possible gang-related confrontation Tuesday at Walla Walla High School.

According to a sheriff's report, a 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy were detained by campus security for fighting.

While in the school's main office, both boys claimed the other "called them out," and both appeared to be willing participants in the fight, according to the report.

One boy told the officers that the other "threw up 18th Street" signs prior to the fight, in a hail to the 18th Street gang. The other boy is apparently loyal to the Labor Camp Crew, or Warriors.

The boys were taken to the Juvenile Justice Center for disorderly conduct.
