LAS VEGAS, NV (KTNV/CNN) - At least 18 students have been suspended after an administrator discovered a fight ring at a middle school.

Kids reportedly would even place bets on who would win. One seventh grader said it started with a Snapchat group, and videos began making the rounds at the school.

At least 18 were suspended, possibly more, including kids who were watching or recording.

Parents said they were shocked and surprised at how big the fight club got.

No students suffered major or serious injuries and no students have had to be hospitalized as a result of the fight ring. Officials believe all participants were students at Tarkanian Middle.

The investigation is ongoing. The Clark County Sheriff's Department is looking into the situation for possible criminal charges.
