A suspicious item found by police at Kenwood High this morning following an email threat to the school is a piece of pipe.
A day-long investigation at the school has determined that the threatening email is spam that landed last night in the mailboxes of several Kenwood staff people. School officials became aware of the threatening email at about 5:30 a.m. and promptly notified police, who responded to the school and found what resembled a pipe bomb outside the school building. (Baltimore County Public Schools dismissed all Kenwood students at 9:30 a.m. as a precaution.)
BCoPD's Hazardous Devices Unit retrieved, investigated and detonated the object and determined it to be an old piece of pipe.
The police investigation included a thorough search of the school and the school grounds. Police have concluded that there is no threat to Kenwood High.
