HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a 19-year-old man has been severely hurt when a homemade bomb exploded as he allegedly tried to use it to blow up some turtles.

Police say the Kingwood man suffered severe injuries to his hands and lower extremities.

The Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that the man apparently lit a cigar, which police believe produced ash that ignited a cartridge in his pocket. Police declined to release further details on the homemade bomb but say no charges have been filed over Saturday night’s incident at a bayou.

Names of the injured man, further details on his condition and the identity of an 18-year-old male who was with the victim haven’t been released.
