ACT Policing attended McDonalds restaurant in Braddon yesterday evening (Sunday 13 September) following a small gas explosion.

About 9pm, a 41-year-old man from Giralang entered the restaurant and ignited a 9kg gas bottle which he had brought with him. The man sustained possible life threatening injuries. He was treated at the scene by ACT Ambulance and conveyed to the Canberra Hospital.

No other patrons or staff were injured in the explosion.

ACT Policing and ACT Fire and Rescue evacuated the occupants of the restaurant and the floors immediately above in James Court as a precaution.

Cooyong Street was closed between Mort Street and Northbourne Ave while the cause of the explosion was determined.

Investigations are ongoing but police do not believe there is any further risk to the community.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000 or online via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

For those unable to read between the lines: he was the only one injured and police don’t believe there is further risk to the community. Just a hint but I’d be looking at mental health issues before crying terrorism.

still havent been able to locate any info on why this happened? Anyone know, or have heard of any motivation behind this?

Like the turning back of the boats, keeping the information from the public will make the problem go away and keep the public safe from the truth.

Shocking news. And it’s a wonder this hasn’t yet been reported as terrorism?? Why on earth would someone do this?
