    Explosion injures 4 at Georgia law firm

    DALTON, Ga. An explosion at a small-town law firm in northern Georgia injured at least four people Friday, and authorities were seeking someone they believe may have been involved in the attack.

    Witnesses said the blast around 10 a.m. blew out the windows at McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham in Dalton, 26 miles southeast of Chattanooga, Tenn.

    Police Lt. Bruce Frazier said the blast was caused by some type of explosive device. Investigators were looking into a person of interest in the case, but no one had been arrested, he said. He declined to provide more details.

    Blast caused by "suicide bomber" says LE

    Dalton — The paths of two long-time Dalton acquaintances erupted violently Friday morning when a family property dispute ended in what investigators are calling a suicide bombing.

    Lloyd Sylvester Cantrell, 78, was killed and James H. Phillips, 79, was badly burned by a bomb witnesses said Cantrell threw into the window of Phillips’ law firm, authorities said.

    “He was intending to do harm to a great number of people,” said Scott Sweetow, assistant special agent in charge with the Atlanta field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “Essentially, what this guy intended to do was to become a suicide bomber.”

    This was on our news last night. It's so sad that the elder man felt he had to resort to hurting innocent people just because he had a dispute with his son.
