A small, homemade explosive made from a two-liter bottle filled with a “volatile substance” detonated around 8 a.m. at the Emily Dickenson Elementary School Monday. A bus driver who was passing by the “acid bomb” was injured by something that was expelled from the bomb, what exactly is unclear. A second adult was exposed to fumes from the device. While there were students in the building at the time of the explosion, none were injured. The bomb has been described as “not particularly sophisticated” and when the bomb squad swept the building no other devices were found. Two other nearby schools were either shut down or locked down as a precaution.
