Details Coming To Light On Explosion at DA's Office

By Jim McCoy Wed 13th November NewsexplosionJackson County District Attorney's Office
Officers in Medford say they found a burning propane tank Wednesday in front of the Jackson County prosecutor's office after an explosion they believe was an attempt to level the building. Medford police spokesman Lt. Mike Budreau says the explosion damaged mostly the exterior, shattering windows, but the tank didn't fully detonate. If it had, Budreau tells the Medford Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/1aTtdUX), "it would have most likely destroyed most of the building, and we believe that was the intent of the suspect." No injuries were reported. Budreau says police are searching for a man who ran from an officer several blocks away, but authorities aren't sure he's connected to the explosion. Police Chief Tim George says the district attorney's office is part of a downtown cluster of government offices.
