LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials say at least 12 people have received medical attention after someone discharged pepper spray during a confrontation in the lobby of a Las Vegas hotel.

The Clark County Fire Department treated people at the scene of the Thursday morning incident but no one was taken to a hospital.

Police had responded to the Alexis Park Resort near the Strip to reports of a stolen vehicle.

They say it appears that a fight broke out over the vehicle, which led to several people being pepper sprayed.

The lobby was evacuated and fire crews ventilated the area.

The incident remains under investigation.
