Police in Vermont say the device found outside a McDonald's restaurant in Morrisville that prompted the shopping plaza to be evacuated was a live hand grenade.

The state police bomb squad made the device safe and removed it.

WCAX-TV reports that police said Friday that they don't know where the explosive came from.

Police were called to the Morrisville Shopping Plaza at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving the report about the grenade.

When officers arrived they determined it was a completely assembled grenade.

Police shut down parts of Route 15, evacuated the plaza and called in the state police bomb squad.

State police x-rayed the device and determined that it was real.
