An investigation into the incident is underway, and officers are going through video footage.

FORNEY, Texas — A teen suspect and an officer were both transported to a local hospital following a "brawl" at North Forney High School Monday afternoon, school officials told WFAA.  

Around 1 p.m., Forney ISD said a fight broke out among four to five students at the end of a lunch period. As the fight ended, a Forney ISD officer had one of the suspects in custody, when the suspect allegedly headbutted the officer, the district told WFAA.   

Both the suspect and the officer were then transported from the school to a local hospital. 

No word yet on how they're doing. 

An investigation into the incident is underway, and officers are going through video footage.

That footage shows more than 4-5 students fighting, along with staff and members of the district's police force trying to stop everything. 

At one point in videos posted to social media, you can see several students kicking another on the concrete. 

A staff member can also be seen falling to the ground. 

The names of those involved have not been released. Official charges have not been released or announced either.
