    Background: An explosion shattered a neighborhood drug store in Marietta Georgia, Thursday night (31 October) killing seven persons and injuring 25 others, eight of them seriously.

    The blast occurred shortly before 6:30 P.M. when the street in front of the store was filled with children in Halloween costumes and adults waiting for the start of a Halloween parade.

    The Director of the State Crime Laboratory... Dr. Herman Jones...says the explosion may have been caused by gas leaking from a heater in the basement of the store. The blast demolished the front of the store and sent splintered glass and chunks of concrete flying into the crowd on the street.
