Four Asheville (NC) police officers were injured by a blast that went off no more than a foot away from them while they were on patrol Saturday.

The officers had to have metal shrapnel removed from their skin after someone threw an explosive device at them.

ABC13 reports that it happened about 9:45 p.m. as Housing Unit officers were patrolling Livingston Apartments on foot.

While checking around some buildings they noticed sudden movement, followed almost immediately by a blast near their heads.

They believe it was one person who intentionally attacked them.

Police state that the explosion likely came from a commercial-grade firework.
