MILWAUKEE – Police in Milwaukee blocked off Holton St. between Locust and Hadley early Thursday morning after a grenade was discovered in a home.

Five squad cars reported to the scene, and some residents in the area were evacuated until the bomb squad could arrive. According to police, the grenade was just an “empty hull,” and not armed. It was removed from the home.

Police say there is no longer any threat to the community, but they are remaining on the scene to investigate.
