INDIANAPOLIS — A fight involving pepper spray sent 15 Indianapolis students to a hospital and an evacuation of their high school.Lawrence Township schools spokeswoman Mary Louise Bewley says the fight began Wednesday afternoon with a fight in a common area of Lawrence Central High School on the city's northeast side. Someone pulled a fire alarm after a student released pepper spray.

Students were evacuated to the school gymnasium, but once there, pepper spray was released again, and the gym was evacuated.
