Pipe bomb found inside Lockport apartment

LOCKPORT, NY - Police say a pipe bomb was found inside an apartment on Genesee Street in the City of Lockport Thursday evening. Investigators say a new tenant was doing some renovations inside and found the device when it fell from a ceiling tile he was removing.

Lockport Police removed the device with assistance from the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and Erie County Bomb Squad. People inside the complex were moved to a safe location at the Salvation Army while this all took place, but they were allowed to return home a short time later.

Police are now trying to find out how the device got into the apartment.
