Bomb Detonates Near Colorado Springs NAACP Building

On Tuesday, members of the chapter felt the blast throughout the entire building and said that the blast also caused items to be knocked off of the wall.

Other than the small mess and general uneasiness, no one was hurt by the bomb's detonation. The FBI also assures the concerned that there will be a thorough investigation and that they even have a person of interest in mind. With this being said, the person of interest's demographic's should come as no surprise as the likely culprit is said to be a white, forty year old male.

The Chapter's president Henry Allen Jr. has said that despite any attempts on harming or scaring the members, the members will "move on" and continue to do their jobs.
