Mortar Shell Found In Home

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2015

A suburban Kansas City woman cleaning out some of her husband’s items found what is believed to be a live explosive in their home.

The Prairie Village, Kansas, woman called police around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday saying she had found an old military item that could possibly be an explosive.

Prairie Village police spokesman Capt. Byron Roberson says Overland Park police’s bomb squad determined the device appears to be an unexploded rifle-mounted mortar round.

Prairie Village police requested military personnel from Fort Riley come to the home and dispose of the item.

Police evacuated the house and blocked off the street. They also told neighbors what was going on and asked them to stay inside their homes — preferably in their basements.
