BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — At around 1:50 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, officials at Boston Latin Academy in Roxbury discovered a plastic bag that contained ammunition at the school's loading dock.
Since the bag was found after class had been dismissed for the day, the school community did not need to go into "safe mode," officials said.
Boston Police were called immediately after bullets were located and were on the scene within minutes, school officials said. BPD conducted a sweep of BLS and found no other suspicious objects, but say that their investigation is ongoing.
Boston Public Schools spoke to WBZ NewsRadio about the incident in a statement.
"The safety of our students and staff remains the top priority of the Boston Public Schools. Today’s incident is troubling. District and school leaders will continue to work with the Boston Police on their ongoing investigation and provide any support to the school community that may be needed. We’re grateful that at no time was any student or staff person in danger and we are thankful to the Boston Police and School staff who responded quickly," a spokesperson for BPS said.
