SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A suspicious device found on the University of San Diego campus Saturday prompted a visit from police and the bomb squad, but it was rendered safe, police and fire officials said.

A cylindrical device with batteries and wires attached was found in a dorm room on the campus off Linda Vista Road near Via Las Cumbres and university safety personnel called the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, agency spokesman Maurice Luque said.

The bomb squad was dispatched to the scene about 1:15 p.m., according to an SDFRD dispatcher.

San Diego police were called to assist USD's Department of Public Safety, which led the investigation, according to Officer Frank Cali.

The device was rendered safe about 4 p.m., Luque said. No injuries or damage were reported, Cali said.
