A brawl between students at a high school turned vicious when one of them pulled a gun and pointed it at another girl’s head.

Horrific footage shows the teenagers punching and yanking each other’s hair in front of shocked students at Otahuhu College in Auckland on Thursday.

Suddenly, a student dressed in all black is marching toward another waving the gun around yelling: “You touch my sister again, touch her, touch her.”

She approaches the other girl and holds the gun to her head telling her to go away.

“Get the f*** out of here right now,” she yells.

Principal Neil Watson confirmed that police were investigating the incident but it is still unclear whether or not the gun was real.

“We have a member of the public with what looks like a firearm. We’re helping the police with their inquiries, and our priority is the safety and security of our families and students,” he told NZ Herald.

The publication was sent the video by a worried police, as police confirm they have begun their enquiries.

“It was a report of a group of people fighting. Inquiries are underway to speak to those involved to establish the circumstances.”
