Philly police say exploding package was a device
Police Commissioner Richard Ross says a package that exploded in a Philadelphia apartment included an "actual device" that was meant to injure.
Federal agents early Tuesday were helping the city's bomb squad investigate the package that injured the 62-year-old Center City man about 4 a.m. He had received the package Monday evening and opened it early Tuesday believing it contained an inhaler or other type of medicine.
Ross says that although the package was "target specific," investigators don't consider it an act of terrorism.
It wasn't immediately clear if police know or suspect who sent the package, or why.
