Authorities say that they believe that a firecracker caused the loud bang outside of Baltimore's Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse on Thursday afternoon, prompting a bomb scare that closed downtown streets during rush hour. Maj. Sam Cogen of the city sheriff's department said the material that caused the small explosion is being analyzed by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives but was "characteristic of a firework. " He said a more specific description was not available because authorities had not determined what specific kind of device was used.
