VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A report of possible criminal activity at a high school football game in Virginia Beach Friday night led police to find and seize numerous illegal weapons on school grounds.

Virginia Beach police seized nine illegally possessed weapons on school property at Salem High School and arrested four adults, a department captain wrote on Twitter Monday.

Police Chief Paul Neudigate tweeted Monday saying the “tremendous work” was done by the Operations & Investigations Division.

Neudigate said the guns were seized in the parking lot.

The police department did not immediately give information about the identities of those arrested, or how investigators found the guns.

A police department spokeswoman said more information was expected to be released Tuesday afternoon.

Separately, on Friday night, a fight also broke out at a Norfolk football game between Lake Taylor and Norview high schools.
