Emergency crews and a bomb squad were called to downtown Kitchener Friday morning after a suspected would-be bomber died in a vehicle explosion outside the provincial courthouse. Waterloo Regional Police Superintendent Eugene Fenton said it appears the man found dead in the vehicle is the same person responsible for the explosion. “Therefore we are searching two residences in the city of Kitchener to determine if there is any further concern for public safety,” he said at a media briefing late Friday afternoon. Police searched and cleared two residences on Hearthwood Drive and Grand Flats Trail Friday evening.
