Three teenage boys were arrested Tuesday in connection with fight suspected to be gang-related, authorities said.

South Lake Tahoe police responded Friday to a report of a fight in the 1200 block of Ski Run Blvd., authorities said.

Five males fought two other males, police said, and all were juveniles.
