WAPT reported:

A police bomb squad detonated a device Wednesday that was found inside the library at a Vicksburg school.

A police dog found what Armstrong said was an IED inside a backpack in the school’s library.

There was no explosion and no injuries, the chief said.

“It came about by way of a concerned, courageous student who did the right thing in reporting it to authorities,” Armstrong said.

The student told school staff that a classmate showed him the device, which the student brought to school in a book bag, according to Armstrong.

Two students were detained, including a 13-year-old, police said.

Officials said a search warrant at the home of one of the students found materials believed to have been used in the construction of the device.
