Alabama attorney general says explosive device detonated outside office over weekend

 Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said an explosive device detonated outside his office over the weekend but there were no injuries.

"In the early hours of Saturday, February 24, an explosive device was detonated outside the Alabama Attorney General's Office Building in Montgomery," Marshall said in a statement released Monday.

"Thankfully no employee or personnel was injured in the explosion," he said. “Alabama law enforcement agencies will be leading the investigation, and we are urging anyone with information to contact them immediately.”

No details regarding the incident were revealed.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, as well as the Marshal's Office, told Fox News Digital that no additional information will be released and that the investigation is ongoing.

It was not immediately known whether the device resulted in any property damage.

No motive has been disclosed, but the incident occurred after Marshall said he would not prosecute providers of in vitro fertilization or families who use their services.

The Alabama Supreme Court recently ruled that frozen embryos can be considered children under state law. The decision was in response to two wrongful death cases brought by three couples whose frozen embryos were destroyed in an accident at an Alabama fertility clinic.
