On Tuesday a failed bombing attempt at a local chapter of the NAACP in Colorado Springs created even larger waves via Twitter when thousands couldn’t find coverage from mainstream national media to authenticate details.
According to preliminary reporting from the Los Angeles Times and the Denver Post, an “improvised explosive device” was detonated against the exterior wall of the NAACP building on South El Paso Street in Colorado Springs around 10:45 a.m. A spokeswoman for the FBI in Denver reported that no one was injured; a gasoline can placed near the device had failed to ignite during the initial explosion. According to the FBI, officials are seeking a “potential person of interest,” described as a balding white male about 40 years old.
