Weymouth police say a student brought an “inert” hand grenade to the Frederick Murphy Primary School on Thursday morning.
Local police and fire officials determined that the grenade had been hollowed out and was not dangerous, but “out of an abundance of caution” called in the State Police Bomb Squad, according to Weymouth police Captain Richard Fuller.
He said the bomb squad verified that the grenade was harmless and removed it from the scene.
“It does not appear that there was any malicious intent involved,” Fuller said “At no point was anyone in danger.”
He said the school resource officer was investigating further. The public school has about 290 students in kindergarten through fourth grade.
