Boy suspected of setting off explosive device

KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - Police say a 12-year-old boy was taken into custody after allegedly creating and setting off an explosive device in Kapolei.

Honolulu police spokeswoman Michelle Yu says because of the suspect's age, police aren't providing any details about the incident or the device. She says there were no injuries or damage when the device exploded around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the boy was turned over to Family Court.
