All clear after pipe bomb found in Generose parking ramp
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Bloomington Bomb Squad was called to Mayo Clinic Thursday afternoon after a pipe bomb was found in the trunk of a car in the Generose parking ramp.
Mayo Clinic officials gave the all clear shortly after 5 p.m.
According to Mayo Clinic spokesperson Bryan Anderson, "Out of an abundance of caution, the immediate area surrounding the location was secured. The Bloomington Bomb Squad was dispatched and removed the bomb without incident. No patients or staff were at risk. We thank all emergency responders, including law enforcement, and Mayo Clinic staff who responded to this incident."
Rochester police say a person from Winona County traveling to Mayo Clinic to visit a relative found the pipe bomb in their yard and put it in the trunk of their car. The person told Mayo security about it and police responded.
The pipe weighed 50 to 60 pounds and had caps on each end and a wick. Crews pried open the trunk and took the bomb to a safe place to detonate it.
