Does Joel Hinrichs have a copycat at Georgia Tech?
This afternoon, News 11 Atlanta is reporting:
|Three explosive devices found in a courtyard between two Georgia Tech dormitories on the East Campus Monday morning were part of a “terrorist act,” an Atlanta police official said.|
|One of the devices exploded, injuring the custodian who found them inside a plastic bag. Two others were detonated by a bomb squad.|
|“It will be a joint investigation between the Atlanta Police Department, the Georgia Tech Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Every possible lead will be followed,” said Major Moss.|
|About 100 students were evacuated from the Cloudman and Glenn dormitories, according to school spokeswoman Amelia Gambino.|
UPDATE: Latest word is that it’s a student prank. If so, I bet those students are sorry they picked that particular prank.
