A student at Narbonne High School in Harbor City retaliated against an allegedly threatening classmate by spraying the other teen with pepper spray Wednesday morning.

Firefighters were called to the scene following a report that about a dozen people had been exposed to an "irritant," according to City News Service.

The unidentified female student brought the pepper spray to school because she had been intimidated by the other student, reports CBS2.

According to the preliminary investigation, the two girls were fighting when one of the students used pepper spray on the other, said Susie Solano of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
