The Georgia Fire Department responded to a bomb scare at its firefighting headquarters in Atlanta early Friday, and fire fighters used a helicopter to rescue the first two people they found.
Firefighters found a black suitcase filled with a device that resembled a bomb.
Georgia State Police spokesman Steve Kallman said in a statement that two men had tried to use the suitcase to bomb the building.
“The device detonated on impact,” Kallmin said.
No one was injured.
The first victim was identified as David Sousa, a 51-year-old who lived in Atlanta.
The bomb squad was called to the scene and Sousas body was found inside the suitcase, Kallmans statement said.
The second victim, who was not identified, was a man who lived at the home, Karr said.
“Our investigation is still ongoing,” Karr wrote in the statement.
“There is no indication that any of the suspects are connected.”
