Five people were injured by the bomb which was packed with nails.
A second explosive device was found by police and was detonated.
The wiring, timing and dynamite in the bombs was so similar to the bombs used at the Atlanta abortion clinic, that officials believe they were made by the same person or group.
But investigators say there are some differences.

In 1986, the AMA divested of all tobacco stocks and mutual funds in it's own portfolio.
A new study finds that patients who had bad outcomes when it comes to medical care, were less likely to sue if their doctors were caring and compassionate.
Doctors with less than two malpractice claims took their time during routine patient visits spending on average 18 minutes.... compared to those with 2 or more claims who spent 15 minutes per patient.
Swedish scientists say there may be a link between an aloof personality, and a communication system in the brain.
Their work, reported in the journal "Nature," focused on receptors in the brain that bind with the chemical dopamine-- brain cells use the chemical to talk to each other.
The researchers say it appears that the lower the density of the receptors, the more likely the person is to be cold and detached.
