An April 27 gang fight led to the arrest of 14 juveniles and adults, the Carson City Sheriff’s Office said in a May 7 news release.

The CCSO Gang Unit and Special Enforcement Team investigated a fight at 20 College Parkway.

“Gang/SET detectives learned that on April 26, 2024, an incident happened in Lyon County involving two rival gangs where a battery took place,” CCSO said. “Later that night, several gang members from Lyon County and Douglas County responded to 20 College Parkway for retaliation. They threatened the gang members/associates at 20 College Parkway and left to recruit more people to participate in the fight.”

Around 2 a.m. on April 27, half a dozen gang members from outside the city returned and fought 8 to 10 gang members/associates at 20 College Parkway.

“During the fight a knife was presented and witnesses on scene also reported that one subject had a firearm,” according to the release. “Detectives reviewed video surveillance and conducted several interviews which led to positive identification of 14 subjects actively involved in the fight. Carson City Gangs/SET arrested 14 total (juveniles and adults) and they were charged with challenging a fight with a deadly weapon.”

The charge is a felony, CCSO said. Eleven juveniles were booked into the Carson City Juvenile Detention Center, and three adults were booked into the Carson City Jail. The adults included Tobey Ahdunko, 21, and Terry Kirkness and Rowdy Stafford, both 18.
