An elderly man in Vacaville was injured by an explosive device hidden in his Sunday newspaper yesterday. When the man went to retrieve the paper from his lawn the hidden device exploded, alerting neighbors who found him "bloodied and lying on the lawn in front of his house," according to KGO-TV. The injured man was airlifted to the hospital in Davis while police evacuated the quiet-looking suburban neighborhood and cautioned others against picking up their own Sunday papers. No other explosives were found nearby.
Authorities from nearby Travis Air Force Base, the ATF and the FBI have yet to release additional details on the explosive device, nor have they determined if this was a targeted attack on the unidentified victim, but the whole thing has an uneasy sort of Arlington Road feel to it.
