    Law enforcement investigating assault at Briar Woods

    Three members of the Briar Woods High School Varsity football team are under investigation for the assault of a junior varsity player, according to sources at the school.

    Loudoun County Public Schools are working with the sheriff's office on the investigation and don't wish to hinder that investigation by commenting further at this time, according to Wayde Byard, public information officer with LCPS.

    The sources said the three players have been removed from the team and are facing suspension.

    Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division are working with a Briar Woods school resource officer to investigate the allegations of assault at the school, according to a statement released by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

    The circumstances involved in the assault are still under investigation.

    This incident is not being classified as a hazing, as it was not sanctioned by the schools.

    Investigators have been aware of the incident since Friday afternoon.

    This is a developing story. Check back to for more information as it becomes available.
