The incident reportedly occurred at about 11:29 a.m. last Thursday at P.S. 91, located at 68-10 Central Ave .
Law enforcement sources stated an MK II novelty grenade was found in a box near the reception desk. As a precaution, the school was reportedly evacuated after administrators spotted the device.
