UNIONDALE - Police say a 10-year-old is now facing charges after being accused of shooting pepper-spray in his Uniondale school.

Officials say 20 students and four faculty members were taken to the hospital with eye and throat irritation.
The fifth-grader was arrested and is charged with unlawfully possessing noxious material.
Police say the boy's parents are cooperating with investigators.
There is still no word on a possible motive of how he got the pepper-spray.
