(CBS Charlotte) — Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department were dispatched to a house located on Sharon Amity Road yesterday afternoon to investigate a reported death.

Upon arrival, officers found a deceased male inside the home. After searching the home, police found explosives inside the home that appear to be homemade.
