Boy died of grenade explosion bought in antique store

A 12 year old boy died from the explosion of a grenade bought in an antique store in Northern California, United States. According to the authorities, the projectile was supposed to be “inert”.

“They were thought to be chemically inactive MK 2 grenades, a style used during WWII.”the Agency on Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) said in a statement.

The explosion occurred on December 23 and the device was purchased in June 2020.

When the artifact was sold, both the seller and the buyer did not believe that “the grenades worked or were dangerous.”

Authorities may not be able to determine the exact number of grenades sold because the transactions were made in cash. Further, it is not clear whether the minor had purchased the explosive projectile.

Now the concern for ATF officials is that possibly more shells from the same supplier were sold.

“The purchased grenades could contain live explosives and be dangerous to the public,” the agency said.

Therefore, he asked the buyers of that same store to communicate as soon as possible with the agency that is part of the United States Department of Justice.
