State police and the Pittsburgh Bomb Squad were called to a Beaver County home on Thursday night where an improvised explosive device was detonated during an argument.

State police in Beaver said a suspect entered a home around 10 p.m. along Route 30 in Greene Township with a shotgun and two IEDs. The suspect and occupants had an argument about personal property. One IED detonated, although no one was injured, and the suspect left behind the second, which the city bomb squad responded to detonate, police said.

Today, police obtained a search warrant of the suspect's Greene Township home, where they found suspected explosive materials and a suspected pipe bomb, state police said. The city bomb squad was called in again and rendered the device safe.

The identities of those involved were not released by state police, who continue to investigate and await crime lab results.
