D.C. Fire and EMS took nearly 30 students from the Lab School of Washington to the hospital after someone discharged pepper spray in the school about 9:30 a.m. Friday, fire officials said.

Fire spokesman Pete Piringer said 32 students were evacuated from the school at 4759 Reservoir Rd NW after a small amount of pepper spray was released. Most of the students evacuated were taken to the hospital as a precaution. Two students -- a 15-year-old female and a 17-year-old male -- were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
