Several Washington DC businesses were killed in a series of bomb attacks this morning.

Between 4:30 a.m. and 4:45 a.m., several explosive devices, including a Molotov cocktail, were detonated in front of buildings around the US capital.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said it was looking for more than one suspect, as well as a vehicle believed to have been used to escape from each of the three crime scenes.

In all three cases, police said only commercial properties were attacked and they did not believe there was any intent to harm the public.

The first explosive detonated near a Truist Bank ATM at 4:30 a.m., causing damage to the area.

The second attack was launched at around 4:36 a.m. at the entrance to the Nike store, barely a mile from the US Capitol.

Finally, at around 4:45 a.m., a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a Safeway supermarket, again causing damage.

None of the three premises attacked were open at the time of the attacks and no casualties were reported.

The MPD said it was offering a $10,000 reward for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crimes.

This reward was matched by a contribution from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, bringing the total to $20,000.

A statement from the MPD said: “Anyone with information regarding these incidents, including video or photos from the crime scene, is asked to call the MPD at (202) 727-9099 or text their tip to the SMS notification of the police Department to send.’ Line 50411.’
