BREAKING: Explosion at DA’s Office in Medford, Oregon
A bomb went off at the district attorney’s office in Medford, Oregon early this morning.
The windows of the building were reportedly blown out.
Police have set up a perimeter at the district attorney’s office in Medford after an explosion about 4:30 a.m., according to KOBI TV.
The station reports that an unspecified explosive device detonated near or on a propane tank. The blast shattered windows.
A man in dark clothing several blocks from the scene ran from an officer and has not been found, Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau told the Mail-Tribune newspaper. It’s not known if he has a connection to the blast.
Arriving officers saw a large propane tank on fire, Budreau told the newspaper. Damage was mostly on the exterior of the building, at 715 W 10th St. Had the tank fully detonated, it likely would have destroyed most of the building, he said.
KOIN described the device as an IED.
