Thirteen students were injured and transported by paramedics to a nearby hospital this week after pepper spray was released at Ogden International School of Chicago. The incident took place at the school's Jenner Campus, which holds preschool and grades 5th through 8th.
According to reports, a 12-year-old boy was dared by another student to set off pepper spray. He did it in the school cafeteria, spraying it on food. In total, 25 students were effected.
This dangerous trend continues to spread all around the city. Recent weeks have seen a rash of pepper spray incidents in schools all over Chicagoland.
