(CBS Charlotte) — Earlier today, a 9-year-old boy found a hand grenade near his home in Rock Hill.

The boy was playing outdoors with a friend when they discovered the grenade, which was partially buried in the ground.

At some point, the mother of one of the boys realized that they were playing with a hand grenade and called police.

Upon investigating, officials determined that the grenade did not contain any explosives. As a precaution, it was taken to the nearest bunker, where it was destroyed.
