Paramedics were called to a Watts elementary school Friday after several children became sick, officials said.

A shelter-down order was issued for Ritter Elementary School after an estimated 10 to 12 students reported "feeling ill," a Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman confirmed to The Times.

Authorities told KTLA-TV that the children were believed to have been sickened by an unknown substance. Los Angeles County Fire Supervisor Bernard Peters told the television station the children complained of nausea and upset stomach.
