A report of a grenade shut down a Lockport business and major intersection this evening.

Lockport Police responded to Walnut and Locust streets around 9:30 p.m. in response to a call that there was a live grenade -- or grenades -- inside Toys from Lo, a used toy store on Locust Street near Walnut.

While reports differ on what police actually found, and LPD has yet to release a statement on the incident, the owner of the store said that the incident stemmed from a purchase he had made earlier in the day.

Store owner Josh Lopez posted publicly on his personal Facebook page that he had purchased a remote controlled car from a kid, which turned out to be broken. When he asked for his money back, the kid called police saying he had a bomb in the store.

Police re-opened the intersection shortly before 11 p.m.
