Bremerton Police Department Press Release

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, at approximately 1345 hours, Bremerton Police Officers responded to the report of an explosion in an alleyway in the 800 block of 6th Street. Part of the explosive device struck an unoccupied parked vehicle, causing a fist sized dent on it, and other parts of the explosive device traveled over 100 feet, landing on a sidewalk near the Kitsap Rescue Mission. A small 2 inch by 2 inch chip in an exterior building wall was caused by the explosive.  No people were injured as a result of the explosion.

The Washington State Patrol’s bomb squad, along with Special Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation are en route to assist with the investigation.

Investigators from the scene have been provided a suspect description of; a white male, wearing a green jacket, and dark colored ball cap with a possible tattoo under one of his eyes (unknown design). No age range, height or weight was provided to officers.

The evidence being taken from the scene related to the explosive leads investigators to believe it to be consistent with a low explosive powder, BUT this will have to be determined by a laboratory.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
