DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. — Police say up to 100 high school students were affected by the release of pepper spray inside Douglas County High School.
Douglasville police spokesman Maj. G. Graff said someone set off the pepper spray in a hallway of the Banks Building at the school west of Atlanta.
Graff said between 75 and 100 students complained about itchy eyes and noses.
Graff tells WSB-TV that police were unsure who released the pepper spray, and were looking at surveillance video to learn more.
Emergency officials evaluated the students as firefighters helped evacuate part of the building.
