San Diego police have responded to a City Heights school after a staff member discovered a suspicious device Friday morning.
A janitor working at Hamilton Elementary School on Fairmount Avenue called police around 6:30 a.m. Friday to report what appears to be a 32 oz soda bottle wrapped with duct tape according to San Diego police officials.
A bomb squad determined the device was not a bomb, and they have dismantled it.
Lt. Jerry Hara with the San Diego Police Department said the device may have been a science project or a prank.
The area east of the school, the 2700-block of 44th Street, was momentarily closed.
As students arrived to school, they were sequestered in the cafeteria. They are not believed to be in danger. By about 8:15 a.m. they were allowed back into classes.
