Basement Renovations Result in UXO Find

Buffalo, New York A resident doing renovations in a basement found an odd object lodged between the floor and wall. Upon further examination, she discovered it was an old artillery round.

The woman called the Buffalo Police who called in the Erie County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad. ATF agents also responded to the scene. The xrays taken by the bomb squad proved inconclusive so the bomb squad contacted the military for additional assistance. An Air Force EOD team from the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station responded.

The shell was removed several hours later for off-site disposal. EOD identified the round as a WWI artillery shell, exact type of ordnance was not reported.
