Kanawha bomb squad detonates device after possible pipe bomb found

Crews at the scene said a device was detonated Thursday after a possible pipe bomb was found at a residence in the Pinch/Elkview area.

A robot was working earlier to remove the device from a home on South Pinch Road, Sgt. Brian Humphreys, spokesman for the sheriff’s department said.

Humphreys said a female had committed suicide at the scene earlier on Thursday.

Eyewitness News has a crew at the scene.
