NEWAYGO, Mich. (AP) — A high school in western Michigan has reopened, a day after a student accidentally detonated a homemade explosive in a classroom.
The district says Newaygo High School was found to be safe after vents and the heating and cooling system were checked.
Police say a 16-year-old boy brought a homemade explosive to school Monday and accidentally detonated it, injuring himself, four other students and a teacher.
Police say it's not something that was planned.
The boy’s injuries were described as “moderate to severe.”
More explosives were found at a residence and safely detonated by authorities.
