The victim, Lt. Joseph Gerretz, received a package through interoffice mail from Piper. Once opened Gerretz saw a red cylinder with wires coming out of it. A handwritten note accompanied the package which said the word “boom”.

A bomb-sniffing dog was called to the scene and a partial evacuation was ordered.
