More than 25 people at Narbonne High overcome by pepper spray

Paramedics and firefighters responded to Narbonne High School on Thursday morning to treat 25 or more people on campus suffering from the effects of pepper spray, officials said.

Several units were dispatched at 10:18 a.m. to the school after reports that pepper spray had been released into the air, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

It was unclear whether a student or security staff had discharged the suspected pepper spray that was creating breathing difficulties at the school at 24230 S Western Ave.
