Jack n’ the Box employee Leonel Mateo was just clocking into his morning shift at the popular fast food restaurant when the device exploded. He spoke to Canyon News about the incident.

“It sounded like a loud explosion,” said Mateo, “the first thing I thought was maybe a car exploded, the first thing I did was look into the street and I saw smoke coming out of the newspaper stand.  I was puzzled; how would that blow up?”

Authorities describe the device as a ceramic pipe bomb and are currently investigating who may have placed the device and whether it was meant to target someone in particular. 

Damage caused by the blast was limited to the news rack.  There were no reported injuries.
