LOS ANGELES – At least 17 people have been treated at a Los Angeles high school after a police officer used pepper spray to break up a fight.
Police say two fights had broken out between students at John C. Fremont High School on Thursday morning and an officer used the pepper spray to end them. KNBC-TV reports that police say only one student was targeted with the spray. An officer tells the station that the other students "got an overspray" because of a breeze.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says two people suffered minor injuries.
Police say the officer's decision to use pepper spray will be reviewed.
