Feds probing possible terror act at Air Force recruiting center

12 July 2017

The explosion caused heavy damage to the doors of the Air Force Recruitment Center in a shopping plaza just after 10:30 p.m.

Authorities are investigating into what may have caused an explosion next to a Bixby, Oklahoma, U.S. Air Force recruiting office.

NewsOn6 reported the explosion came from a possible pipe bomb.

Workers with a glass company arrived late Tuesday morning and began to replace broken windows and a blown-out front door at the recruiting office. Authorities initially said it was believed to be an act of domestic terrorism, but a federal agent later said it is being investigated as a criminal act. "Obviously, they would have done it in broad daylight if that were the case, so, from that standpoint, it's a positive", Rice said.

Several days before the Tulsa area Air Force recruiting center was bombed, a National Guard recruiting center in the area was vandalized. No injuries were reported.

The FBI is checking with nearby businesses for video, interviewing witnesses and trying to rebuild the bomb. Terrorism of some type has not been ruled out as the motive behind the bombing in Bixby. The center was closed at the time and no one was injured. That vandalism included slashed tires.

ATF and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are scouring the area for video surveillance that might have captured someone placing the device or could show a vehicle containing suspects, Davis said.
