MIDLAND – A report of an explosive device led Midland ISD Police as well as Midland Police to an elementary school in Midland.
We're told police responded to a report of an explosive device at Milam Elementary on Monday morning.
Dr. Ryder Warren, Superintendent for Midland ISD, tells NewsWest 9 the device was outside of the front door.
Police immediately locked down the campus and evacuated all classes that were near the front door of the school as a safety precaution.
We're told that during the interview process with the kids from the school, a younger student said they brought the device from home. Midland Police were able to determine that the device was either a large firework or some kind of oilfield device. Police were able to take possession of the device and remove it from campus.
