    Citing local authorities, it was reported earlier that a 16-year-old boy and four other high school students were injured at Newaygo High School in Michigan after the teen detonated a homemade explosive inside a classroom. While authorities have launched an investigation, officials have speculated the incident was an accidental detonation.

    The Michigan State Police (MSP) announced Tuesday afternoon that its bomb squad returned to a local residence that was the subject of a search warrant in connection with yesterday's explosion. 

    Team members reportedly detonated bombs and scoured the scene to ensure an investigation could begin. While an address was provided, it's unclear if the suspect is the owner. 

    After several hours Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that investigators would begin their investigation of the residence.  

    Newaygo County Prosecutor Worth Slay also announced 34-year old David Robert Daniel Saylor had been arraigned on one count related to the manufacturing of explosives and another count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. 

    Saylor was also charged as a habitual offender, as this is his second "Offense Notice." 

    Child Protective Services have also been notified in relation to the event, according to the MSP's West Michigan Twitter page. No further details were provided. 

    ​Saylor is due to appear in court on March 18 for a probable cause hearing.
