LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A student discharged a pepper spray canister in a Las Cruces middle school classroom, resulting in several students needing treatment for inflammation.
Police say preliminary information indicates the girl got the canister from another student and may not have known what it was.
According to the Las Cruces Sun-News (https://bit.ly/1etYlLd ), no serious injuries to the teacher and 26 students in the eighth-grade classroom were reported as result of the Thursday incident.
The classroom was evacuated and school maintenance personnel used a large fan to disperse the pepper spray.
