A 19-year-old male 

suffered severe injuries 

to his hand, lower 

extremities and face after 

a bomb he made 

detonated while he was 

carrying it in northeast 

Harris County, according 

to police. 

The Houston Police Department said that at about 7:40 

p.m. on Saturday the teen and another 18-year-old male 

had gone down to a bayou near the 3100 block of Valley 

Rim Drive. The teens had materials to create what is 

being called a "combustible mixture" with the intention 

of going to go "blow up turtles." 

Police said that at some point, the 19-year-old lit a cigar, 

and the ashes from his cigar fell near his pocket where 

he was carrying the explosive cartridges. Police said it is 

likely that the ashes ignited the cartridges. 

The 18-year-old was not injured in the explosion, police 

said. There have been no arrests or charges in 

connection with the incident.
