    DHS on scene of Columbus police HQ station, Soft target for terrorists?

    Columbus fire officials said there were no reports of injuries.

    Columbus police dispatchers said the noise was heard on the second floor where a deli is located. Dispatchers said it did not start a fire.

    An officer inside the building told 10TV that another officer smelled gunpowder at the time of the reported explosion.

    There were also reports of suspicious people in the area at the time of the reported explosion, police said.

    Some of us on another forum were musing whether this incident was a negligent discharge that got a bit "overdispatched".

    The PD does not even know what is going on in their own building? Hilarious.

    Subsequent reports stated that it was a battery of some kind that exploded. One spokesman had said it smelled like gunpowder residue.

    Any reasonably trained nose--like mine has been from 31+ years in the fire service--would be able to tell the difference between those two types of explosion aftermath.

    Of course, a functioning brain is also required, right?
