Young Man Responsible For Ferris Pop Bottle Explosives 'Sad And Deeply Remorseful'

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Students returned to school at Ferris Thursday just one day after two pop bottle explosive devices went off inside the high school. Wednesday afternoon one male student confessed to the act and today KHQ Local News Reporter Alex Rozier spoke with his family. They did not want to go on camera at this point because the investigation is ongoing, but they said the young man is "sad and deeply remorseful."
 
The Spokane Police and Fire Department are not saying at this point if charges will be filed, but they did say right now they are still looking into the situation. The principal at Ferris, Kevin Foster, said today that he is pretty sure that the young man who did this did not intend to harm anyone. He believes he simply wanted to disrupt the school day. Since this incident began authorities have made it clear this device could not do much harm unless someone was standing directly over it or happened to be cleaning up the chemicals. 
 
Police officials described the device as a pop bottle filled with household chemicals. The principal said right now they do not know if the young man acted alone or if others are involved. The boy faces suspension until the school allows him to come back, but the principal gave no indication of when they may allow for a possible return.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. >>
