Update: SkyView Academy explosive device reportedly a water bottle and chemical
Update: Two juveniles were taken into custody following the explosion of what's been described as a "chemical device" at SkyView Academy charter school. At least five people required treatment at an area hospital; see our previous coverage below.
Big photos, videos below.
Now, authorities are detailing a possible charge against the pair for possessing the items in question -- reportedly a water bottle that erupted after a chemical was poured into it.
Ten individuals -- possibly including the arrestees, although that still hasn't been confirmed -- were evaluated medically afterward, with four students and a teacher being transported to the hospital; a fifth student was taken there by family members.
Meanwhile, the two students were taken into custody, and a search warrant was executed at the home of one.
Now, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office reveals that the pair are being investigated for suspected possession, use or removal of explosive or incendiary devices.
However, the 18th Judicial District DA's office is ultimately in charge of determining if this or any charge is appropriate.
As for the device itself, 7News reports that students at SkyView say it was actually a water bottle.
The addition of a chemical is said to have caused the explosion, causing the bottle itself to rupture.
