Hutchinson police are investigating after officers found a homemade explosive device behind a bar.
Sgt. Eric Buller says officers went to Gold Diggers bar after receiving a report of an explosion Sunday afternoon. He says the bar was evacuated as police and fire officials tried to determine what happened.
Investigators determined the explosion occurred in a fenced-in area behind the bar that has a seating area and a fire pit.
Buller says officers later found a device that included a couple of pipes welded to a metal base. Gunpowder had been poured and on the device and then ignited.
Officers dismantled the device. No injuries were reported.
