OKMULGEE, Okla. — The Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office received multiple 911 calls Monday night of what sounded like several explosions.

Okmulgee County Deputy Gary Makinson said the explosions were close together time wise.

"The explosions that happened about five minutes apart,” Makinson said.

Right now, investigators have few leads as to where all the explosions were, but they are working to determine if someone may have been a targeted victim.

“We found one incident of a small explosion at someone’s residence in the southern part of the county," Makinson said.

Nobody inside the home was hurt and there were no other reported injuries from the other explosions.

Investigators are working to identify a possible suspect responsible for the device thrown at the home.

“We’ve got a description of a possible vehicle," Makinson said. "We’re trying to verify the actual vehicle the device was thrown from.”
