The employee was brought to the hospital with only minor hand injuries, according to the police. No one’s name was revealed.

According to the official, investigators are currently looking into the reason behind the explosion on Tuesday night and are attempting to determine why Northeastern in particular received the box. The official continued, “Investigators are also attempting to ascertain the precise mechanics of the device and whether the package contains any gunpowder.” The official talked to The Associated Press under the condition of anonymity because they were not to publicly discuss inquiry specifics.

The inquiry is being conducted by the Boston Police Department, the FBI, and the ATF. As this is an ongoing inquiry, all of the agencies declined to make any official statements.
