Students sickened at Theodore Roosevelt H.S.

Twenty-three students were taken to the hospital after they were sickened by an odor at Theodore Roosevelt High School Friday afternoon.

Initial reports indicated that the odor may have been pepper spray, but school officials say they aren't sure what the source of the smell was.

The students who were transported for medical attention were taken to St. Barnabas and St. Luke hospitals.
