The suspect in an attempted bombing at a Colorado mall has been identified, and authorities say he was released from prison just a week ago.
A nationwide manhunt has been ordered by the FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force, who identified the suspect as Earl Albert Moore, 65, according to CNN.
Firefighters responded to a fire at Southwest Plaza mall in Littleton Wednesday, and discovered a pipe bomb and two propane tanks in a hallway near the food court, according to the Associated Press. The explosives did not detonate, and nobody was injured in the fire.
Photos released Sunday show Moore with tattoos on his left forearm and upper right arm, and authorities said he was last seen wearing glasses, CNN said.
"Last time we know where he was locally was around noon Wednesday at the mall," said FBI spokesman Dave Joly. AP said Moore has several arrests, with a criminal record dating back to 1984.
Moore has an extensive criminal background, and federal officials said he should be considered dangerous, said AP.
