School shutdown after Mace attack

A Rosemount High School cafeteria was the location of a showdown between two students. When one pulled out a weapon, an administrator stepped and took the hit. Lucky for everybody, the weapon was only a can of mace. All 1,900 students at the school were sent home and the cafeteria disinfected. Although paramedics looked at about 50 students, no one sustained any significant harm from the chemical spray irritant. The student was apprehended by a police liaison officer and later taken into custody. The student faces disciplinary action by the district and possible criminal charges.
