Tales From Black Friday: Pepper Spray

At least 20 people suffered minor injuries Thursday night inside a crowded Wal-Mart in Porter Ranch after a female customer used pepper spray on other shoppers attending a Black Friday sale, officials said.

At least seven people were examined after being hit with the pepper spray. The 10:10 p.m. incident forced employees to evacuate part of the store, police said.

“This was customer-versus-customer ‘shopping rage,'” said Los Angeles Police Lt. Abel Parga.

He said police were seeking a female suspect. Parga added that it was unclear what prompted the confrontation.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials said they were treating about 10 people with minor injuries at the store, which is on Rinaldi Street near Corbin Avenue in the San Fernando Valley.

Shawn Lenske, a Fire Department spokesman, said the injuries, all minor, were due to “rapid crowd movement.”

No arrests have been made.
