University of Maryland, Baltimore County campus police reported Sunday finding two Molotov cocktails a day earlier in a dormitory stairwell.
The two homemade incendiary devices, filled with a flammable liquid with a wick inserted into the mouth of the container, were discovered about 10:20 a.m. Saturday by a UMBC employee in an exterior stairwell of Gunpowder-Terrace Apartments, a student dormitory on the Catonsville campus of the university, said Paul Dillon, deputy chief of the UMBC Police Department.
Dillon added, "We're still investigating the case and we have no suspects at this time."
No one was hurt in the incident, he said.
The university alerted its students and employees to the situation in an email about six hours after the devices were found.
