PAHRUMP, Nev. (KLAS) — Twenty-one-year-old Anthony Dinkel was arrested on multiple charges following an incident at Pahrump Valley High School Tuesday morning.

He was removed from school property, arrested and booked into the Nye County Detention Center. He was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of possession of a deadly weapon on school grounds and two counts of child endangerment.
No one was injured during the incident.
