Bangor High School, Middle School placed on lockdown after explosion

School Lockdown
School Lockdown

BANGOR (WKZO) -- Bangor Middle School and High School were on lockdown Friday morning.

Around 9:10 a.m. a homemade explosive device in a pop bottle detonated in a high school locker, and a second similar device was found in a middle school bathroom.  The two buildings are connected and while the school was on lockdown, no one had to be evacuated.

The perpetrator has been seen on surveillance footage and has since been detained by law enforcement.  The high school student admitted to planting the devices on a dare.

No one was injured, and a security sweep of the building to check every locker was conducted as a precaution.
