Bomb Explodes Outside Colorado Springs NAACP Office
No injuries occurred because a gasoline can next to the bomb didn’t detonate.
An “improvised explosive device” was set off against an exterior wall of the NAACP building, the FBI’s Denver field office said in a statement.
“A gasoline can had been placed adjacent to the device, however, the contents of the can did not ignite upon explosion,” the statement said.
The FBI did not say whether the country’s oldest civil rights organization was specifically targeted or if race played a role in the incident….
The FBI and Colorado Springs Police are investigating the incident and are looking for a person of interest who is described as a balding Caucasian man about 40 years old who may be driving a pickup truck, the statement said.[su_csky_ad]
