SAN DIEGO — A San Diego Police bomb squad confiscated a practice aerial bomb that was brought to a Linda Vista fire station Sunday morning. 

The WWII-era device was originally confirmed to be a mortar shell by San Diego Police. 

A man reported to 10News reporter Jessica Chen that his friend left the duffel bag containing the unusual find at his motor home. He then discovered it and brought it to Fire Station 23 on Linda Vista Road and Comstock Street around 11 a.m.

The explosive was transported away from the scene by the bomb squad. A military representative is expected to pick up the explosive tomorrow.  

Comstock Street was shut down temporarily while the bomb squad investigated.
