Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies are trying to find out how and why a pipe bomb was placed on Ottawa University’s campus.
According to new information released by the Ottawa police department, the “suspicious device” that caused a three-hour campus lock down Friday afternoon was confirmed to be a pipe bomb and removed by the Olathe Fire Department Bomb Squad for further examination.
Police were initially dispatched to the campus just after 1 p.m. Friday after campus security reported a suspicious device. The device was located in a parking lot away from any structures.
