EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Police say an explosive device was thrown through the window of a north suburban house, causing an explosion that blew out the home’s windows. Evanston police Commander Ryan Glew said Wednesday that police and firefighters who responded late Tuesday to a reported house explosion found that the residence’s windows were blown out, but no one was injured. Glew tells the Chicago Tribune that “some sort of explosive device”‘ was thrown through the home’s first floor window. He says police have not identified any suspects or made any arrests in the attack, but Evanston police and the Illinois state fire marshal are investigating.
