Bomb Blast At University Of Oklahoma

According to Gateway Pundit (who has photos along with his excellent post), the Sooners were playing their football game yesterday not far from the bombing:

Police are investigating an explosion at the University of Oklahoma late Saturday afternoon that killed one person.

Authorities suspect it may have been a suicide. Campus police say the body was found outside the university’s botany-microbiology building on the west side of the Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. A game was under way at the time.

The university’s president says the blast could be heard by some in the crowd of 84-thousand, but that no one inside the stadium was ever in danger.

I’ll be very interested to hear the outcome of the investigation.

Update: In a post that’s also highly illustrated with photos, Duane Patterson tours the memorial of another, far deadlier Oklahoma bombing from a decade ago.
