TULSA -- The Tulsa Bomb Squad has rendered the device believed to be a live grenade safe after its discovery inside a north Tulsa house Wednesday afternoon.

The device has been turned over to agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and explosives for further investigation.

The incident began after police served a search warrant to a suspect for shooting with intent to kill on the 2700 block of East Admiral Court.

After a brief standoff, the suspect, later identified as Jason Wood (pictured below), surrendered to police. Police say they noticed 12 other people inside the house.

After clearing and searching the home Wood was located inside, police found what is believed to be a live grenade.

"We were in there and kind of kicked it around just before we even found it, the level of danger is not that to a pipe bomb. I don't think it's going to explode or it would have already done so," said Sergeant Dave Walker with the Tulsa Police Department.

Wood is suspected of shooting someone in the neck roughly one week ago, according to police.

Several people inside the home at the time of the search also had warrants for their arrests, according to Walker.
