Explosion confirmed at USAF Recruiting Center in Oklahoma

The ATF and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are among the officials investigating an explosion outside an Oklahoma Air Force recruiting office.

According to the arrest report Tuesday, Roden faces federal charges of possession of explosive materials and destruction of government property in the blast Monday night in a commercial area in the Tulsa suburb of Bixby.

Some damage was reported to the front doors of the building.

However a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Explosives has confirmed the incident is being treated as a potential act of domestic terrorism.

A United States Air Force recruiting office near Tulsa, Oklahoma was bombed on Monday evening.

A suspect in the bombing of an Air Force recruitment office southeast of Tulsa will appear in court today.

A witness told KJRH-TV that a person on a red motorcycle, described as a "crotch rocket" threw a backpack at the Air Force recruiting center and then drove off. The law enforcement agents are reviewing the scene and collecting evidence to help determine what type of bomb was used and what the possible motive was for the crime.

The incident occurred at the recruitment center near Bixby's 104th Street and Memorial Drive. "About injuries was not reported", - said in the message. The bomb also pierced the canopy over the office.

"It's a little bit comforting that they didn't want to kill anybody".

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI's Oklahoma City field office at 405-290-7770.
