(FreedomBeacon.com)- A police department in Washington State is looking for a man who reportedly planted an explosive in the automobile of a funeral attendee, causing the vehicle to explode.
Authorities in Auburn, Washington, stated the device was planted by a passenger in a black vehicle when the victim was attending a funeral at Mountain View Cemetery on August 23.
The explosion hurt no one, although it wrecked the car and adjacent trees.
According to the Auburn Police Department, municipal personnel followed the suspect’s automobile, prompting the passenger to fire firearms at them.
The Auburn Police Department explained on Facebook that the City of Auburn personnel followed the suspect’s car as it exited the area. As the employees followed, the suspicious vehicle’s occupant fired several rounds at them.
According to police, the car is a black Acura RL with no license plates. A tall man wearing a black ski mask was characterized as the suspect.
Auburn is a middle-sized city located around 26 miles south of Seattle.
On its social media pages, the Auburn Police Department requested that anybody who recognized the car or had information regarding the event contact the Auburn Police Department Tip Line at 253-288-7403.
According to the most recent FBI data, the total crime rate in Auburn, Washington, is 4,484.0 per 100,000 inhabitants, according to the crime statistics website HOMESNACKS. This is 81.05 percent greater than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 50.69 percent higher than the total crime rate in Washington, which is 2,975.8 per 100,000 people.
Because crime rates in America are so low, HOMESNACKS utilizes “per 100,000 people” to make the figure simpler to compare across places graphically. It is theoretically equivalent to making per capita comparisons and does not express that a location has 100,000+ inhabitants.
There are no statistics for bombings. Well, not yet, anyway.
