Winnipeg police have charged a 16-year-old student after pepper spray was discharged at another student at Kelvin High School earlier today.

Police say there was a fight between two students at the high school on Tuesday morning, and a 16-year-old pulled out a can of pepper spray.

The other student and a teacher who was nearby were hit by the spray, police confirmed.

Officers who were called to the school arrested the 16-year-old a short time later.
