An explosive device discharged within a garbage pail (Pictured below) at approximately 9:35 am. There are no reported injuries or damage to surrounding structures. The Ocean County Prosecutors Office Arson Unit is on scene and will be assisted by FBI, ATF and NJ State Police Bomb Squad.

At this time the area is on lock down while bomb dogs search for additional devices. There is a report of at least one other device which the NJSP will make safe. Please avoid the area.

The device was placed along the planned route for a Semper Five run scheduled for this morning. The start of the run was delayed, which thankfully avoided a large number of runners in the area – Al Della Fave.#OCPONEWS

Authorities immediately cleared the boardwalk and beach area and bomb-sniffing dogs were being used to search the area.

The Associated Press reported that authorities said there was a report of at least one other explosive device that a state police bomb team would “make safe,” but further details were not disclosed.

Officials say runners were expected to be pass by the area around the time the blast occurred but the start of the race had been delayed after an unattended backpack was found.

“We have various K9s throughout the area, bomb dogs that are making sure the area is safe and secure,” a law enforcement official told WCBS 880.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating the explosion and another suspicious package, NBC NY reported.
