NORMAN, Okla. -- One person was killed in an explosion in a traffic circle about 100 yards from a packed football stadium at the University of Oklahoma on Saturday night.
Authorities were calling the death a suicide.
The loud noise of the explosion could be heard inside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, where 84,000 people were watching the Oklahoma Sooners play Kansas State.
Officers cordoned off an area west of the stadium after the explosion and nobody was allowed out of the stadium immediately after the blast, which occurred shortly before 8 p.m., at about halftime of the game. People were allowed out of the stadium at about 8:30 p.m.
A police bomb squad detonated explosives found at the site of the blast.
The area near the stadium was searched by bomb dogs.
OK....This is starting to sound a little bit like London.
So a suicide carries a spare bomb? I think not.
Pipe bombs near football game = terrorist attack.
