PULLMAN, Wash. — The Spokane Explosive Disposal Unit defused a device in Pullman on Sunday morning that "appeared to be a 'pipe bomb'."
According to a press release from Pullman Chief of Police Gary Jenkins, Pullman Police officers responded to a report of a possible bomb at the City Playfields at 8:03 a.m. on Sunday morning.
Officers found a device that they said appeared to be a "pipe bomb," Jenkins said. The device was located next to electrical panels near a walking and bike path.
After securing the scene, the Spokane Explosive Disposal Unit was called for assitance, Jenkins said. The unit then arrived shortly after 10 a.m. and "rendered the device safe."
