UPDATE: A 16-year-old student from one Las Vegas-area high school has been charged as an adult with murder in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old student during an after-school fight at a rival school two weeks ago.
    
Prosecutor Michael Schwartzer says a North Las Vegas judge on Tuesday ordered Sakai Kayin French held on $1 million bail pending an Oct. 9 preliminary hearing of evidence in the case.
    
French, a junior at Cheyenne High School in North Las Vegas, was not asked to enter a plea. His attorney, Alexis Plunkett, declined to comment.
    
French is accused of killing Dalvin Brown during an after-school fight Sept. 11 near the baseball field at Canyon Springs High School, which Brown attended.
    
Schwartzer says multiple students convened for the fight and witnessed the shooting.

Authorities say the single victim of a shooting Tuesday at a high school in North Las Vegas was a student.

Police in North Las Vegas in a statement released Wednesday said the 18-year-old victim had an altercation with a person before he was shot at Canyon Springs High School.

Authorities say they have not identified the suspect, who fled before officers arrived.

Fewer than 500 students participating in athletics and after-school activities were still present at the school when the shooting happened around 2:40 p.m. Tuesday, prompting a lockdown.

The man was found shot on the edge of the school's baseball field.

Police say no motive has been determined but believe the attack was not random.

The Clark County coroner's office is expected to publicly identify the victim Wednesday afternoon.

Washoe County School District Board President Katy Simon Holland and Superintendent Traci Davis released this statement: 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff members of the Washoe County School District, we express our support to the students, staff, and families at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas following the fatal shooting on their campus yesterday.

Our District joins with the Clark County School District in our continuing commitment to end violence at our schools.
