A house in Arlington Virginia exploded Monday night while police were attempting to gain entry while executing a search warrant.
“As officers were attempting to execute the search warrant, the suspect discharged several rounds, from what is believed to be a firearm, inside the home. Subsequently, at approximately 8:25 p.m., an explosion occurred at the residence. The investigation into the circumstances of the explosion are ongoing,” said the Arlington police department in a press release.
The police secured a search warrant for the home of James Yoo, identified by ARLnow, on Monday evening after a suspect allegedly fired a flare gun from the windows of the house between 30-40 times.
James Yoo has previously used his YouTube account, and his LinkedIn account which has since been taken down, to claim that the January 6th incident at the U.S capitol was orchestrated by the government.
Yoo has also made multiple assertions that the United States is in the process of becoming a puppet state of Israel.
In an Interview with Fox News, Alex Wilson, who recorded the incident, described the police’s attempt to gain entry to the house shortly before the explosion.
“They ended up driving the SWAT truck through the front door,” said Wilson. “At that point, he started firing a weapon back.”
The police then shot out the windows of the house in an attempt to gain entry, according to Wilson.
The house exploded as police were preparing to enter through the front window.
The Arlington police press release does not mention any of the methods used in their attempt to execute the search warrant.
Although someone was allegedly firing from inside the house at the time of the explosion, police said that no one was hospitalized, and only minor injuries were suffered by three officers.
Police later claimed that human remains, believed to Yoo, were discovered in the wreckage after the explosion.
The office of the chief medical examiner is working to positively identify the body.
After the incident, however, Yoo, or someone using his account, resurfaced in the comments of a YouTube short.
In the comments, which have since been disabled, Yoo claimed that he was being targeted by the government for his past work with The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).
The CFIUS uses classified information gathered by U.S intelligence organizations to assess the national security impact of foreign business ventures in the United States.
“I was being spied on by the U.S government for previously working as head of security for CFIUS!! They assume I am a traitor,” said the person controlling Yoo’s YouTube account username.
“All my social media is being banned for no reason, I wasn’t even home when that incident happened… You’ll all know the truth soon,” they said.
It is unclear who was inside Yoo’s house at the time of the explosion, and Yoo refused to answer the questions.
In response to questions he made a cryptic reference to something that will be revealed on December 7th.
“You’ll know the truth before 7th,” said Yoo, “12-7-23 Shhh.”
