Despite warnings from RCMP—there IS a lot of speculation about the reason for two explosions at the Strathcona County Community Centre Tuesday night.
For now–RCMP are simply saying there was a blast in the building’s parkade around 6:30 that night. A 21 year old man was found in a vehicle with critical injuries. He was taken to the hospital where he died.
The car was apparently packed with a large amount of tannerite.
Tannerite is normally used for firearms practice–and is a binary explosive–which means components have to be mixed before it becomes volatile.
Almost two hours later–there was another explosion in the parkade–while emergency workers were there.
Mounties say at this point—they aren’t looking for other suspects–but the bomb squad is going to remain on scene–while other officers are going to make sure the area remains secure.
It still remains to be seen if there was any structural damage to the parkade.
Salisbury Composite High and St. Theresa School are going to be closed again today.
