KINGWOOD, TX (KTRK/CNN) - A home-made bomb detonated sending a Texas teen to the hospital.

Residents in this Houston area neighborhood say the 19-year-old and two others were spotted running from a bayou after the bomb went off.

Neighbors suspect the kids were trying to blow up turtles.

One neighbor described the moment the explosion happened.

"I heard 'boom,' an explosion. But I live right behind Ford Road, so I thought they shoot shotguns back there. So I dismissed that, then I heard screaming," said Mark Contreras. "Then my wife came home and she said there was a boy lying on the grass, bloodied up; his stomach and his face."

The teen was taken to the hospital with injuries to his legs, torso and hand.

Police say no criminal charges are expected.

how are there no charges for a homemade bomb?

Sometimes they just let it go when the lesson is taught through experience. 

It happened a lot more in previous decades than it does now.
