An explosive device was detonated Saturday morning in Montgomery outside the Alabama Attorney General’s Office building, prompting an investigation by law enforcement officials.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall issued a statement Monday explaining that no one was injured in Saturday’s explosion and that the incident was under investigation.

“In the early hours of Saturday, February 24, an explosive device was detonated outside of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office building in Montgomery,” Marshall stated. “Thankfully, no staff or personnel were injured by the explosion. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency will be leading the investigation, and we are urging anyone with information to contact them immediately.”

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency confirmed to The Guardian Monday night that the agency had been notified of Saturday’s incident. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency noted that a “suspicious package” was determined to be the source of the explosive device that was detonated outside the state attorney general’s office on Saturday morning.

“No injuries or damage to nearby buildings have been reported,” the agency added. “Troopers, along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and officers from Montgomery police department, responded to the scene and deemed the area safe. The investigation remains ongoing.”

Following reports of the explosion, CNN reported that Marshall spokeswoman Amanda Priest warned the media “not to jump to conclusions about a specific issue” when asked if the incident was connected to Marshall’s position on the issue of in vitro fertilization in Alabama.

On Friday, Katherine Robertson, the attorney general’s office’s chief counsel, released a statement claiming that Marshall “has no intention” of using the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling on in vitro fertilization to prosecute “IVF families or providers,” according to The Guardian. The statement was released in response to the Alabama Supreme Court’s recent ruling that embryos are children and protected under the state’s “Wrongful Death of a Minor Act.”
