Person held after pipe bombing of Oklahoma Air Force recruitment center

The FBI, the ATF and local authorities said they are investigating an explosion at a U.S. Air Force recruitment office in Bixby, Okla.

"We can confirm that we have taken into custody a person of interest in regard to the bombing at the USAF Recruiting Center last night", the FBI Oklahoma City office said on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Special agents also are looking into whether a link exists with a vandalism at another recruitment office that is within walking distance of the bomb site.

Agents are investigating the possibility that the explosion was an incident of domestic terrorism, according to the Tulsa World. The explosion happened while the office was closed and no one was there.

Jennifer Proctor said Wednesday that Benjamin Don Roden enlisted for Air Force active duty in April 2012 and joined the state's air national guard in October 2014. The witness said it appeared there was a "pipe bomb" inside the backpack.
