Pittsburgh bomb squad personnel removed a grenade that was found Friday afternoon in the parking lot of Riverview Manor in Brighton Heights.

The grenade was spotted on the ground between a trash bin and a vehicle by a resident around 4:15 p.m., said Michael Burns, a bomb squad technician.

“We don't know if it's live or not,” Burns said.

The grenade was removed to a safe location to determine if it contains explosives. If it does, it will be destroyed, Burns said.

He said there is no indication how old the grenade is or where it came from.
