Tear Gas Injures Several People at a Gay Pride Parade

On Saturday, more than a dozen people were injured at the 25th Annual Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade in San Diego.

A tear gas canister was thrown into a crowd of people watching the parade, causing several people to be taken to the hospital and others to be treated for eye and skin irritations.

Police delayed the parade in order to catch the perpetrator, but no arrests were made.
