MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A third suspect has been charged in connection with the explosion of two chemical-filled bottles at a Memphis high school.
Police said Friday the third suspect, like the other two, is an 18-year-old student at Craigmont High School where the explosion occurred. All three are charged with aggravated assault, felony reckless endangerment and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Two bottles filled with household cleaning products detonated Thursday on separate floors of the school in what authorities called a prank. An assistant principal received medical treatment, but there were no other reported injuries.
Classes resumed Friday after being dismissed early Thursday.
