    A San Diego-area student is accused of spraying mace at classmates after an argument, Helix High School Executive Director Mike Lewis confirmed to NBC 7 San Diego. 

    Lewis said the incident happened at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when several students in the library got into an argument about someone on social media. He could not say which site specifically. 

    One of the students walked out then came back and sprayed the other with mace. 

    Other students in the area were hit by the spray as well, Lewis said. 

    No one was hospitalized. The student directly hit by the mace washed their eyes. The student who used the spray will face disciplinary action from La Mesa Police (LMPD) and the school, Lewis said. It is unclear what action the student will face, other than school officials will follow code. 

    La Mesa Police are investigating. 

    No other information was immediately available.
