A Mesa school was placed on lockdown Monday after two students and two campus officers got into a fight on campus, according to police.

Police said the incident started when the principal at Sun Valley High School tried to diffuse an argument between a group of students. The principal escorted a male student into his office, where the student became upset and began fighting with a campus officer, police said.

The male student's brother later jumped into the fight and also starting beating on the officer, officials said. Another officer joined in and the school was then placed on lockdown, police said.

Police said one of the officers deployed a Taser gun to stop the fight, but it is unclear whether the student was actually shocked. No serious injuries were reported.

The officers were taken to a hospital to be checked out while the two students were taken into custody, police said.

It is unclear exactly what prompted the fight at the school, which is located near Lindsay Road and Southern Avenue.
