Device explodes at Kan. high school
(AP) LEAVENWORTH, Kan.–A suspicious device exploded as technicans were dismantling it Thursday at an alternative high school in Leavenworth.
Students had been evacuated after the device was found, and no one was injured.
The device was found in an office by staff at North Broadway Education Center, said Maj. Patrick Kitchens with the Leavenworth Police Department. It broke some glass when it exploded but caused no other damage, he said.
The technicians were using a device that shoots water at a high velocity, trying to separate the device’s components. Kitchens said “99 percent of time” it defuses the explosive but “in this incident it caused the device to go off.”
Police were not releasing details about the type of device while the investigation continues, he said.
Friday classes at North Broadway were canceled, said Catey Edwards, communications coordinator for the school district. About 100 students attend the school.
