PINOLE, Calif.—An eighth-grade graduation ceremony in Pinole was canceled after a gang fight broke out and an off-duty officer was assaulted.

Police and officials at Stewart School say as many as six juveniles were involved in the fight Wednesday evening. None of them were students at Stewart.

Police arrested two 17-year-olds on suspicion of assault on the officer who tried to break up the fight. One of the teens also was booked on suspicion of participating in gang activity.

Officials canceled a school dance later that evening at the request of police. They moved the graduation ceremony to Thursday morning, and it was held without incident.
