Vienna Teen Fight Club Raises Concerns

VIENNA, Va. (WUSA)-- Police in Vienna are investigating what they're calling a real life fight club.

The most alarming part: the participants are mostly kids. 

Bill Murray, a spokesman for the Vienna Police Department says on January 13th an officer was looking for a missing juvenile when he came across a group of 20 boys between the age of 11 and 13. The group was gathered in a parking lot near the 100 block of Park St. NE. 

Police say when the officer approached he noticed two boys fighting while the rest watched. One of the boys told police they were part of a fight club.

Authorities say none of the young teens were hurt, and at this point there's isn't enough information to suggest this is a trend, according to detectives.
