MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department is investigating after shell casings from a construction nail gun were found in a girls bathroom at the Fowler School on Thursday.
During the morning, a student in a physical education class found what appeared to be empty shell casings in a plastic clip. She immediately reported the findings to her teacher and said that the casings were inside the holes of a cinder block at the top of a wall in the bathroom.
The teacher notified Principal Sharon Seyller who called Maynard Police Detective Christopher Sweeney, the department’s school liaison. Detective Sweeney determined that the shells were not from any kind of firearm but rather originated in a powder actuated nail gun commonly used by construction workers to fasten items to concrete.
The shells were spent, and there was no explosive powder remaining in the shells.
While there has not been any recent construction work in the building, officials believe that the shells may have been left in the cinder block holes 15 years ago when the building was constructed.
The shells were removed, and school and police officials do not believe there is any danger to the community or any criminal intent in this instance.
“The safety and security of children at school is paramount for the Maynard Police Department,” Chief Dubois said. “Thankfully, this appears to be nothing more than the careless disposal of construction debris. We are grateful to the student who immediately came forward upon making this discovery.”
Chief Dubois and Superintendent Dr. Robert J. Gerardi, Jr. have also been in contact about the incident.
There was no disruption to the school day, and classes went on as scheduled Thursday.

STATEMENT FROM MAYOR MARTIN J. WALSH
BOSTON – Saturday, January 28, 2017 – Mayor Martin J. Walsh today released the following statement regarding this week’s executive orders:
“Preventing people from entering this country based solely on faith runs counter to everything we stand for as Americans. Let’s be clear: this is not an effective way to combat terrorism and increase homeland security. It is a reckless policy that is rooted in fear, not substance, and further divides us as a nation and a world. It is simply morally wrong. As Americans, we must move forward together as a country proud of our diverse heritage, and find real solutions to the challenges we face.”
The following is a joint statement from Cambridge Mayor E. Denise Simmons and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale:

No injuries have been reported. Chief Miles reports that a father and juvenile son were home at the time, and the mother and daughter were running an errand. The son heard the smoke alarm and alerted his father. The two evacuated the home safely.
Firefighters from Wayland, Maynard, Lincoln, Concord, Hudson, Acton, and Weston are at the scene assisting the Sudbury Fire Department. Crews from Framingham, Marlborough, and Bedford are covering Sudbury at this time.
The heavy fire was knocked down shortly after 8 p.m., but there is extensive overhauling and serious damage to the home. The family will not be able to return to the house this evening. This remains an active scene, and there is no word on an origin or cause at this time.
Motorists are urged to avoid Sawmill Lane and the intersection of Concord and Lincoln Roads near Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, as fire apparatus are working in the area and using fire hydrants in the neighborhood.
