Gatesville possible pipe bomb threat


by Danielle Skinner and Brandon Hartman

Gatesville - Police were called out to investigate a suspicious object that was found in a vacant apartment in Coryell County, just south of Gatesville.

A tenant on the one hundredth block of valley view drive found a suspicious looking object tucked away inside a closet,while trying to move in.

The tenant believed the object was some sort of explosive.

A bomb squad from fort hood was called to respond, while neighbors were asked to stay inside their homes.

After examining the device the bomb squad secured it and took it back to fort hood to be destroyed.

It is still not known whether or not the device was explosive, the incident is still under investigation.
