KATY, Texas (AP) — Harris County authorities are investigating an after-school brawl that left one high school student hospitalized with a gunshot wound.

Officials say dozens of students were involved in the melee Friday after classes at Cypress Lakes High School.

Harris County Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Newby tells the Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1hhNbIn ) it appears the wounded student was targeted and the fight may be connected to gang activity.

Neighbors say about 50 to 60 high school students were involved and most scattered after several gunshots rang out and the student was wounded.

No one has been arrested. The pistol used in the gunfire hasn't been recovered.
