Buildings were evacuated and the bomb squad called in after a suspicious backpack was discovered at East Carolina University. The unattended backpack was found behind the Jenkins building on the Greenville campus, prompting that building, the Irving building and the old cafeteria building to be evacuated. A K-9 unit detected something in the bag which could be used to make explosives. So, the Cherry Point Marine Corps Bomb Squad detonated it with a water cannon. Turns out it contained sections of copper pipe. The owner of the backpack was being held for questioning.
