Grenade-Like Object Puts School on Lockdown

Deer Path Middle School was put on lock down Friday after a resident reported a suspicious object on the sidewalk nearby, according to a press release from the Lake Forest Police Department.

The item was found at the intersection of Deerpath and Golf a little after noon, and was determined to be “a previously discharged incendiary device designed to look like a grenade,” police said.

It was removed and all school activities and diverted traffic returned normal at 1:20 p.m.
