FBI investigating explosion outside NAACP office in Colorado - CNN.com
Thankfully no one was hurt apparently.The makeshift bomb, or improvised explosive device, detonated late Tuesday morning but failed to ignite a gasoline can placed alongside it. No one was injured but the incident left some in Colorado Springs shaken.
"All of a sudden I heard this big boom," one witness told CNN affiliate KDVR. "There was smoke everywhere the building on the side was burnt."
The witness continued: "Whoever did it took off right away though. That's all I heard and it was scary."
The FBI has not said if the NAACP was specifically targeted. But some pointed out that the other tenant in the building, Mr. G's Hair Design Studios, likely was not.
