Mansfield Police responded to the area of Bicentennial Court around 9 AM this morning where there were reports of a suicidal male.

Officers arrived on scene and located the male subject in bed, in obvious trauma, where he became combative as they tried to stabilize him and transport him to Sturdy Hospital.

While on scene, officers found several items that appeared to be homemade explosive devices both inside the apartment and in the back yard.

The surrounding area and buildings were evacuated as Massachusetts State Police bomb squads and EOD canines were called to the scene to investigate.

Around 10 AM, the MSP Bomb Techs determined the items were not explosive devices and that the area was safe.

All residents are safe to return to the building and Bicentennial Court area.
