State police and the Pittsburgh Bomb Squad removed on Friday what a trooper said appears to be homemade explosive devices from a home in Beaver County.

The investigation began around 10 p.m. Thursday when a man — carrying two homemade explosive devices — went to the home of another man along State Route 30 in Greene Township near Hookstown in a dispute over some personal property, state police Cpl. Robert LaLama said. The man detonated one of the devices, causing no injuries or damage, before being assaulted by the resident and some other people.

The injured man left the second device behind and drove himself to the Heritage Valley Beaver hospital, where he was admitted for treatment of his injuries, LaLama said.

When troopers went to the unidentified man's home along State Route 168 in the township, they found what LaLama said “appears to be” more explosives.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is continuing.
