Bazooka Round Found In Car Entering Fort Bragg

A vehicle thought to be carrying a bazooka round closed a checkpoint at a North Carolina Army base.

Fort Bragg officials said guards at one of the gates found a "bazooka type round" in a car Tuesday. An explosive disposal team was called because it was unclear if the round was live. The driver of the car is a contractor on the base and is being questioned by Fort Bragg police.

The massive All American Expressway gate on the freeway was closed briefly and traffic was diverted to nearby gates. The gate reopened just after 12:30 p.m.
