No one was injured, as those sleeping or keeping vigil fled into a hallway before the chemical spray could impair breathing, but it was the second gas attack in two weeks, said Living Bread Church leader Karen Dunham. On September 17, a man passing by the church’s patio area opened a plastic bag containing a small gas canister. Within seconds, people on the porch were unable to breathe and fled into the church building, only to find that someone had pumped the same chemical spray into the worship hall.
