Pa: Investigation continues after Beaver County bomb

GREENE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WKBN) — The Pennsylvania State Police is investigating after an explosive went off at a Beaver County home.

According to state police, officers were called to a house along Route 30 in Greene Township about 10 p.m. Thursday after the explosion.

The names of the people involved have not been released, but police say one person entered the house with a shotgun and two improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, and began fighting with the occupants about “personal propoerty.”

One of the explosives detonated, but no one was injured.
The suspect fled, leaving the second explosive behind.

The Pittsburgh Bomb Squad was called out and detonated the second IED.

On Friday, police searched the suspect’s Greene Township home and found “explosive material and related items,” including what appeared to be a pipe bomb, according to the report.

The bomb squad safely disposed of that device as well.

The federal bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting state police with the investigation.
