Juvenile charged with setting off acid bomb at a Florida high school

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- In Florida, a 15-year-old student is facing a felony charge after police say he set off an acid bomb at school.

Wesley Chapel High school was put on lockdown Tuesday morning. The device was discovered in a trash can outside.

Deputies say it was some kind of chemical reaction in a plastic bottle that emitted smoke. School officials say it did not explode or cause a fire, but a staff member may have been exposed to its vapors.

The 10th grade student was arrested.
