BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Multiple police officers responded to a gym in North Buffalo Thursday night after "chaos" erupted at the juice bar.

Eyewitnesses tell 7 Eyewitness News that two women walked into the L.A. Fitness on Elmwood Avenue just after 7 p.m. They approached the juice bar, and pepper sprayed the woman behind the counter.

The eyewitnesses described the scene as chaotic, and said two bystanders who were just simply waiting for their smoothies were sprayed too.

AMR said it responded to the scene but did not transport anyone to the hospital.

7 Eyewitness News has reached out to the Buffalo Police Department for more information but has yet to hear back.
