Felicia Maggard, a spokeswoman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, said multiple students had gotten into a fight.

"There was a report of a firearm involved, however, no shots were reported fired," Maggard wrote in an email release. 

BCSO deputies and SWAT teams were called to the campus to work with APS police to clear the school and ensure the safety of students.

Sheriff Manny Gonzales said a gun was recovered, and one person will be facing armed robbery charges. Two others are facing robbery and battery charges.

"We need to give so much credit to those that responded, and the actions of the schools, school officials and the collaboration with law enforcement," Gonzales said.
