Kentucky school finds crude bottle bombs on campus

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A bottle bomb exploded at a Lexington school, chasing band members inside and bringing police to the scene.

Fayette County Public Schools canceled all student activities at Lafayette High School after the detonation Wednesday. District spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall told the Lexington Herald-Leader two other bombs were also found on campus and deactivated.

Deffendall says a search turned up no bombs at other schools and no one was injured by the explosion.

The bombs were made out of soda bottles and the explosion happened at about 8:30 a.m. as the school's marching band color guard practiced on a parking lot behind the school.

Superintendent Tom Shelton says there was no warning phone call or social media message received by the school.
