Police investigating pepper spray at Buffalo school of excellence
Buffalo police, fire and first responders were called to the Pfc. William Grabiarz School of Excellence, Buffalo Public School 79, on Lawn Avenue in the Military Road-Hertel Avenue area of the city around noon Thursday.
Police said a 13-year-old male student discharged a can of pepper spray inside of a classroom full of students. Apparently none of the students were directly targeted, but several students and a teacher from that classroom were treated by paramedics after being affected by the mist from the spray.
A shelter in place order due to the incident was lifted at the school at around 1 p.m. An investigation is underway.
