GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Nine people were injured after a brawl broke out at a Sikh temple in Greenwood Sunday afternoon. 

Greenwood police say the fight started around 2:45 p.m. at the temple in the 1000 block of Graham Road.

Police say daggers, sharp objects and pepper spray were used in the fight, which took place following a change in leadership at the temple.

All of those injured were treated and released from local hospitals. More than 100 people were inside the temple when the brawl broke out. 

Due to the size of the crowd, officers from seven other agencies were called in to help calm and disperse the crowd.

The incident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.
