Owasso explosion suspect identified as 31-year-old Brian Self

OWASSO, Okla. - Owasso police have confirmed the name of a man who blew off one hand and several fingers on the other while packing 13-inch steel shell casings with gunpowder.

Officers say 31-year-old Brian Self suffered severe trauma to both hands May 31 .

ATF agents interviewed a woman inside the residence Wednesday afternoon. During that interview, they discovered a second explosive device in the garage. 

Agents say they recovered gun powder, commercial grade mortar tubes and possible pipe bombs from within the residence after last week's explosion.

Court record show Self was arrested in February for larceny from a Kohl's and in 2003 for throwing a lit substance onto a highway in Lincoln County.
