 St. Louis (KMOV) -- Federal agents are investigating an apparent pipe bomb attack in a quiet south St. Louis neighborhood that may be linked to the murder of a Clayton lawyer in 2006.

The attack happened in the 3900 block of Blow Street on the south side. The owners of this home work for the same law firm as Ernest Brasier, 57, when he was shot and killed at his desk in 2006.

Nearby residents tell News 4 that they heard two explosions around 1 a.m. Friday.  Police say they received several phone calls around that time from witnesses describing sounds as loud as fireworks or explosions.

Police say they found two improvised explosive device on the driveway.  As a result of the device, police say several windows in the rear of the house were broken and some vinyl siding was damaged.

There are no reports of damage and the explosions were confined to the backyard of the home.  ATF agents have the scene blocked off while they collect evidence.
 
The case of Ernest Brasier remains unsolved. 
 
No one was injured in the pipe bomb explosions.
