Two boys were splashed with a chemical inside a bottle bomb at the AMC Movie Theatre in Tysons Corner. Darcy Spencer reports.

Police are investigating a bottle bomb explosion at a local movie theater for the second weekend.

The latest case happened in Largo, Md., at the AMC Magic Johnson Capitol Center. Witnesses said a bottle bomb exploded inside a theater and people were evacuated.

No one was hurt.

Police aren't releasing too much information because they're concerned about copycat crimes. Last week, two bottle bombs went off at the AMC Theater in Tysons Corner in McLean, Va.

Investigators said those bottles were filled with chemicals and metal and they consider it a possible act of terrorism.
