GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A video that shows a group of teenagers fighting and a BB gun being flashed in Green Township is rapidly spreading on social media.

The brawl happened Monday night on the trail behind Oakdale Elementary, according to a teenager who claims to have witnessed the melee. 

Green Township police said they have since arrested two teenage boys, ages 14 and 16, in connection to the video.

The video starts with two female teenagers fighting. Other bystanders get involved and the fight escalates with teenagers yelling at each other and shouting profanities.

Jodi Horn said she was there and can be seen in the white shirt in the video. She said that one of the boys started swinging for her younger sister, who was part of the initial fight with another female, so she jumped in to defend her.

"I took the hit for her pretty much," Jodi said. "I kept pushing him away from her and holding him."

Jodi said one of the boys hit her and kneed her in the face, and not long after that, the other boy whipped out what looked like a gun and started pointing it at people.

Jodi's older sister Leah said she just saw the video for the first time and was shocked.

"The gun absolutely was the most terrifying part because you only see a flash of it in the video," Leah said. "I can't tell whether it was real or it was fake."

Green Township Police said Wednesday that the gun seen in the video was a BB gun.

Leah said she's already using the video to send a message to her younger sisters: "There's other ways to solve it without fighting."

Leah said she also posted the video on social media, where it's already gotten thousands of shares, to spread awareness. She said Tuesday that she and Jodi want more to be done because even though the gun wasn't authentic, they believe the boys' behavior is alarming.

"I'd like both boys to have charges pressed against them," Jodi said.

"Get those kind of people off the streets. We don't want them around the kids that we're raising in our community," Leah said.

Both boys seen in the video are now facing charges, according to police.
