An explosive device went off in a garbage pail Saturday morning along the route of a 5K run and walk to benefit military soldiers.
Multiple devices were also found “wired together” in the same garbage pail, but they did not detonate, according to Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
The explosion occurred along the route of the Seaside Semper Five Marine Corps Charity 5K at around 9:30 a.m.
The device is being described as a “pipe bomb-style device” based on a preliminary investigation by officials from the New Jersey State Police Bomb Squad, Della Fave said.
