DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Davenport school officials say several students had to be treated after a school resource officer deployed pepper spray during an incident at Central High School.

Television station KWQC reports that the incident happened Friday. The school district says there was a disturbance in the 3rd-floor hallway, and the officer responded with the use of pepper spray. Several people reported having trouble breathing and were treated by the school nurse.

Officials say windows were opened on the third floor to help air out the building.

There were no reports of serious injuries.
