NIWOT, Colo. (AP) – Four students at Niwot High School in Colorado have been suspended after pepper spray forced a school evacuation.
Four adults and 45 students were treated by paramedics for respiratory problems and skin irritation after the pepper spray got into a ventilation system.
According to KMGH-TV (

Mountain View firefighters decontaminated the building before students returned inside.
Niwot is between Boulder and Longmont.
