Alleged pepper-spraying Walmart shopper surrenders


By msnbc.com wire reports

A shopper who allegedly fired pepper spray at other customers during a Black Friday sale for Xbox video games has surrendered to authorities, Los Angeles police said Saturday.

Police Sgt. Jose Valle told the Associated Press that the woman who allegedly caused minor injuries to 20 shoppers, including children, at a Los Angeles-area Walmart had turned herself in Friday night.

She was not in custody, but could face battery charges, Valle said. The woman's identity was not released. Police said they would release more details later Saturday.
