Police say two people have been hospitalized after a partygoer blasted pepper spray during a Halloween bash at a Syracuse University fraternity.
    
The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that police are investigating the incident at Tau Kappa Epsilon. The party was shut down after the spraying. University public safety chief Anthony Callisto says the two hospitalized people were released, but it's not clear how many others were hit with the pepper spray. It's also unclear how many people were at the party. Castillo tells the newspaper the fraternity has been referred to the student codes office.
    
He says the investigation is ongoing.
