RANLO, N.C. -- Officials in Gaston County located a bomb Friday afternoon in a wooded area of Ranlo.

Authorities say some kids playing in the woods found the device.

They say the 500-pound bomb is the type that would drop out of an airplane during the Vietnam War.

Experts from Fort Bragg have been called in, and the Gaston County police bomb squad also responded to the scene.
