Pop Bottle Bombs Found At Area High Schools, Student Activities Canceled


Activities at five Fayette County High Schools have been canceled following the discovery of three "pop bottle" bombs.

The homemade devices were found in a bus lot behind Lafayette High School.

A joint investigation between Lexington Police and the Fayette County Public School System is underway. Though one of the bombs detonated around 8:30 am, no injuries have been reported.

WUKY will have updates this afternoon during All Things Considered.

Josh James fell in love with college radio at Western Kentucky University's student station, New Rock 92 (now Revolution 91.7). After working as a DJ and program director, he knew he wanted to come home to Lexington and try his hand in public radio.
