Top News India Monsoon and Kashmir Pilgrims Attacked Dar Yasin  AP

The law enforcement agents are reviewing the scene and collecting evidence to help determine what type of bomb was used and what the possible motive was for the crime.

If domestic terrorism is the cause, it would be the latest attack in the last nine years of military recruiting offices across the United States.

Both the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and the FBI are now investigating the bombing of the Tulsa Air Force recruiting center.

Bomb squads were dispatched to the Tulsa suburb of Bixby around 10:30 p.m. local time on Monday night. "Obviously, they would have done it in broad daylight if that were the case, so, from that standpoint, it's a positive", Rice said. Witnesses vaguely describe the suspect as being a person on a red motorcycle.

Pistons renouncing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, making him a UFA
The former top-10 pick averaged 13.8 points while shooting at a 35 percent clip from three-point range this past season. Caldwell-Pope's -1.4 nERD would position him 5th among Lakers players now locked in for the 2017-18 season.

The explosion had damaged the door of the building. ATF Special Agent Meredith Davis says the blast is being investigated as a possible act of domestic terrorism.

The extent of the damage is still unknown, but images from the aftermath show the blast twisted and opened the office's doors.

There was an act of vandalism at the Air Force National Guard Recruiting Station over the weekend, she said, and they are looking into whether the incidents are related.

The incident occurred at the recruitment center near Bixby's 104th Street and Memorial Drive.
