The incident was initially reported as a structure fire when a caller heard a "popping sound" on aisle 4 of Sam's Club in the 900 block of Milliken Avenue.

"It wasn't like an earth-shaking big explosion," said witness Norman Svikss. "It was like a low sound, like 'boom.' And there's no smoke, nothing. Then the employees start running around and then they slowly said, 'Hey, we have to evacuate the building,' because it's fire or something."

Police also detained a suspect at the scene and said a second explosive was found inside his vehicle although the motive for the crime is unknown.
