Alabama authorities seek person of interest in explosion at state attorney general's office

 Investigators are searching for a possible suspect linked to the detonation of an explosive device outside Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall's office over the weekend.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) said the device was detonated just before 3:45 a.m. Saturday outside the marshal's office in downtown Montgomery.

ALEA officers were notified of a suspicious package at 8:19 a.m. Monday and responded to the area.

Investigators said the package was confirmed as the device that detonated Saturday.

"Thankfully, no employees or personnel were injured in the explosion," Marshall said Monday.

His office declined to comment further. Surveillance footage released Wednesday shows a man wearing a mask walking on the sidewalk minutes after the explosion.

The FBI has launched a website for tips related to the incident.

Investigators have not disclosed a possible motive for the incident, but Marshall said last week that he would not prosecute in vitro fertilization providers or families who use their services.

His comments come after the Alabama Supreme Court 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.
