 Explosive Device Set Off Outside Oklahoma Recruiting Station: Terrorism

An explosive device was detonated outside an Oklahoma recruiting station Monday night at about 10:30 PM.  Police say they are investigating it as possible terrorism but didn’t say whether it was radical Islam or the democratic party they suspect.  I’d say that would be too close to call.  There was visible damage to the front doors but the extent of the damage has not been released yet.  The FBI is heading the investigation.  No other details are known at the present time.

 An explosive device was set off outside an Air Force recruiting center near Tulsa, Oklahoma, federal authorities have confirmed.

No arrests have been made following the incident which is being ‘investigated as a possible act of domestic terrorism’, officials said.

The office was open at the time of the explosion at around 10.30pm on Monday, but no one was injured.

Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off the parking lot area around the recruitment office and neighboring businesses, Tulsa World reported.

From outside the tape, it is apparent that the office’s front doors were damaged by the explosion.

Investigators with the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were at the scene.

Tulsa police bomb squad was the first to respond, according to FBI Agent Jessi Rice, who went on to say the extent of the damage is not known.
