(Cleveland) - Two separate fights led to police and EMS being called to Cleveland’s Jane Addams Business Career Center at 2373 East 30th Street.
Cleveland Metropolitan School District spokeswoman Roseann Canfora tells WTAM it started about 11 a.m. as a fight between four girls, which was broken up by security personnel using pepper spray, but started again, involving as many as 12 girls, who are all being questioned by school security.
Canfora says it is CMSD policy to call EMS when pepper spray is used.
WTAM 1100's Ken Robinson was on the scene and described a large police and EMS presence.
Parents told Newsradio WTAM 1100 security is tight at the school, but they are still concerned about safety, and are very disappointed that some kids were able to disrupt the education process.
The district says no one was seriously hurt. School investigators are trying to figure out who called the police, and what actually caused what some students describe as a "near riot".
If school security determines charges are necessary, the case will be turned over to Cleveland Police. Canfora says the CMSD has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to students fighting.
