Torrington police said the death of a person found in a home on Wolcott Avenue Friday night is not suspicious.
Police responded to 33 Wolcott Avenue around 6 p.m. Friday on the report of the person deceased in the home.
Officials told Eyewitness News that when officers arrived at the home they found the victim and also a suspicious device that could have been an explosive.
The State Police Bomb Squad was called in to investigate and determined the device was not a threat. It was later determined to be an old military pressure release firing device. Police said there were no explosives attached to the device and it did not pose a danger to anyone.
Nearby homes were evacuated for a period of time as a precaution, but police said everyone has since been allowed back inside.
Officials have not released the identity of the person who died.
