A possible explosive device was reported at a Kansas City charter school Monday afternoon.

Police later determined that the device was a fake but was made to look like a real device.

Benjamin Banneker Charter School is at 64th Street and Rockhill Road.

In a statement, Julius Williams, dean of schools at Benjamin Banneker, said students and staff were evacuated at 4:15 p.m. when a security guard saw a suspicious device on the floor next to a trash can.

Kansas City police and the FBI helped investigate. The all clear was given about 7:15m.

Classes will be held as normal Tuesday morning.
