WILLIAMSON, W.Va.–State police discovered a homemade explosive device outside the Cinderella Head Start program in Williamson on Monday.
Spokesman Michael Baylous said the device looked as if it was made of several aerosol cans taped together and had wires soldered to it. It was taken to another location and detonated.
Baylous was unsure if the Head Start program was a target, someone just tried to get rid of the cans, or whether it was meant for apartment buildings nearby.
The intentions of the homemade weapon are still under investigation.
