PITTSBURG GRENADE DETONATION

  • Pittsburg police say a call for an "unattended death" ended with the discovery of an explosive.  Authorities say when responding to the call, they discovered a hand grenade.  The Kansas Highway Patrol was called in to remove the grenade.  The grenade was detonated by the Highway Patrol at the Pittsburg Police Department gun range.  Authorities say the death does not appear to be suspicious.
