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.
Well I do not suppose he will be doing that again.
