According to police for the city of Bixby, the explosive device in question was detonated at 10:30 p.m. Monday evening. The door of the recruiting center was blown off and landed in a parking space in front of the storefront and soot-covered windows. As of yet, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has not labeled the crime as act of domestic terrorism. The center was closed and no one was hurt, federal authorities said.
The U.S. Attorney's Office has filed charges against Roden that include malicious damage to federal property by use of explosives, destruction of federal property, use of explosive to commit a federal felony and destruction of federal property. They believe it may have been a pipe bomb. The FBI has not yet determined if the two criminal incidents at the respective recruiting centers are linked. Witnesses said someone on a red motorcycle tossed a backpack, which then exploded, Tulsa news station KJRH-TV reported.
