AUGUSTA, Ga.---Richmond County Sheriff's investigators are now looking into whether Thursday's fight at Academy of Richmond County High School was gang-related.

They spent Friday looking at surveillance video from the school and trying to find anyone displaying gang signs.

Officers arrested eight people Thursday, and told News 12 they hope to make more arrests based on the video.

The School Board Police and the Sheriff's Office had extra officers at the school Friday.

However, there was another fight on school property that led to three students being suspended.

School is now out for a week for the Spring Break.
