Video Shows ‘Device’ Dropped at Framingham High Saturday Night

FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police, Massachusetts State Police, and ATF agents are still investigating a “device” that caused a ‘minor explosion” at Framingham High, this weekend.

“There have been no arrest or leads,” said Framingham Police Lt. Patricia Grigas Monday night, August 7.

Framingham Superintendent of Schools Robert Tremblay Monday said “upon review of the video surveillance, it appears that a car stopped in front of the high school’s front entrance at approximately 10 p.m” on Saturday, August 5.

At that time, “an unidentified person stepped out of a vehicle and threw/placed the device onto the plaza,” said Tremblay.

“The device detonated without damage, triggering alarms, or gaining attention in any manner. It remained undetected or at least unreported until 5:30 p.m. on Sunday,” said Tremblay.

Sunday night, August 6, police found “some type of device left in the area of the high school front doors,” said Lt. Grigas previously to Source.

She said investigators found “some type of black powder inside PVC-type pipe.”

Earlier in the day, Framingham Public Schools issued a statement. It stated “the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. We are grateful for the concerned citizen who identified something out of place and took the extra step to report that concern. We are also grateful for the ongoing relationship and cooperation with the Framingham Police Department.”
