Bomb squad detonates hand grenade found in SeaTac

SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — A King County sheriff's spokesperson said the bomb squad detonated a grenade that was found near an elementary school in the city of SeaTac.

Sgt. Cindi West says a construction worker found the grenade in a box on a street corner Monday morning.

West says bomb technicians determined the grenade was real, but an X-ray analysis showed it did not contain any explosives. They took the grenade to a remote location where it could be safely detonated.

"The grenade appeared to be an old cast iron grenade and may have been a training device," she said.

School was not in session because of the winter break.
