LOS ANGELES - A customer used pepper spray on a crowd inside a Los Angeles Walmart.
She sprayed her fellow shoppers inside the store Thursday night, as a crowd rushed in for deals on video games.
Firefighters treated at least twenty people, with injuries ranging from burning eyes to difficulty breathing.
Christopher Lo was shopping with his family when his brother was pepper sprayed.
"Once they released the games there were a whole bunch of people pushing around. I was shoved into a box of games. All of a sudden this lady came out with some pepper spray - my brother was sprayed in the face, point blank. He couldn't see, he was on the floor" said Lo.
The store was evacuated, but people were eventually let back inside to continue shopping.
The woman who set off the spray is not in custody, investigators are looking through security camera footage.
