"Roden wanted to quit the Air Force and join the U.S. Marines, however, the U.S. Marines would not accept Roden", the arrest affidavit states. The FBI and ATF are now investigating the incident but they have not determined if this is an act of domestic terrorism.

"There's no doubt that military offices have been targeted in shootings and explosions in the past, but we also see people blowing off their fingers or blowing up their garages", Davis said. Witnesses said someone on a red motorcycle tossed a backpack, which then exploded, Tulsa news station KJRH-TV reported.

The FBI field office in Oklahoma City tweeted that it had "taken into custody a person of interest in regard to the bombing at the USAF Recruiting Center last night".

Federal investigators from several different departments responded to the explosion. An initial report suggests that the device responsible for the blast may have been a pipe bomb.

The incident occurred at the recruitment center near Bixby's 104th Street and Memorial Drive. She said the bureau is attempting to rebuild the pipe bomb as part of its investigation.

One of the office's two front doors was off its hinges Tuesday morning and lying in the parking lot.

The Tulsa World reports that the Tulsa police and Federal Bureau of Investigation took a suspect into custody at an apartment complex on Tuesday afternoon. The individual or individuals involved in the incident vandalized the building and slashed tires of vehicles at the center.

"It's a little bit comforting that they didn't want to kill anybody", FBI Special Agent Jessi Rice said at a press conference.

No suspects have been identified and a motive is not yet known, they said. "Roden blamed the U.S. Air Force for preventing him from being accepted by the U.S. Marines".
