People, no need to panic, it was just a mortar shell on a Jersey City Heights street corner

A local resident being all alert and stuff saw a cardboard tube on Sherman Avenue on Monday and looked inside and saw a mortar round inside. He actually moved the tube out of the road and put it in his front lawn to keep kids from playing with it (Because standing there warning them away wouldn't have worked, no had had to pick it up) and then called police.

The police evacuated nine buildings in the area before a bomb squad arrived and found the shell was not live.

OK, who left the mortar round on the street? You really need to make sure those stay in your backpacks or handle bags.
