NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- A North Las Vegas teen is recovering after being pistol-whipped in front of his high school. School district police tracked down three suspects, three are still at large. 

A school breakfast turned bloody when six attackers jumped three teens at Canyon Springs High School, school police officials said. The victims were at Friday morning's welcome breakfast. One teen suffered serious head injuries.

School district police say six men, some of them recent high school graduates, attacked the three teens in the Canyon Springs High School parking lot. The teens were robbed, two of them were pistol whipped, school police said.

"When we take a positive event, like having 150 students voluntarily come in to school on the last day of their vacation to celebrate the start of the school year. For six individuals to try and take that away from our kids, it's tragic to say the least," said Ron Guerzon, Canyon Springs principal.

Canyon Spring's principal tells the I-Team all three victims have recovered and were at school Monday. The attack set CCSD police on a manhunt with some officers working 26 hours straight to find the attackers.

"They found the individuals, they worked late into the night Friday night. I actually made phone calls to them Saturday just to thank them for their extra work because they did amazing things to ensure that Monday morning, we took care of it," said Pat Skorkowsky, CCSD superintendent.

CCSD police worked with North Las Vegas Police to serve three search warrants. It ended in a house raid with three suspects being arrested. Three of the attackers still have not been caught. CCSD police say they know the identities of the remaining suspects. 

If anyone has information on the suspects, they are urged to call CCSD Police at (702)799-5411 or the hotline, if you chose to remain anonymous, at (702)799-0228.
