Deadly package explosion at Austin, Texas home

Deadly package explosion at Austin, Texas home

A second explosion rocked Austin, Texas, hours after an earlier blast, which was apparently caused by a package left on a porch, killed a teen and injured a woman.

Authorities suspect that both of Monday's explosions were linked to a March 2 attack that killed a 39-year-old black man.

Chief Manley tweeted that if you receive a package that you are not expecting, "DO NOT open it", and instead call 911 immediately.

Per APD, another package located at scene of fatal explosion.

Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference that the latest bombing injured a 75-year-old Hispanic woman.

According to EMS officials, no one else was injured, and they ask that the public remain clear of the neighborhood north of Martin Luther King Boulevard near Springdale Road.

The 17-year-old found a package outside his house in a tree-lined, mixed race residential area and brought it into the kitchen, where it exploded, Manley said. He said neither the Postal Service nor private carriers such as UPS or FedEx have any record of delivering the package to the home where Monday's explosion occurred.

Police did not identify the teenager or the woman and have not released any details about Monday's package. Police said just before noon, they received several calls reporting an explosion in the 6700 block of Galindo Street, near East Riverside Drive and Montopolis Drive. "It's so tragic", Daniel Sledge, one of House's neighbors, recently told KEYE. She is said to be in a critical condition.

U.S. eases way to more tariff exemptions under pressure By
Even if USA manufacturers increased their output of the two metals, it would add only 0.05 per cent to GDP, according to Guatieri. Never mind the net loss of jobs from a full-scale trade war , which would in the end probably be a relatively small number.

Joanna Samarripa, who lives around the corner, said she saw a woman slumped in the doorway of the home after rushing over moments after the explosion.

"We are having innocent people getting hurt across this community, and it is important we come together as a community to solve this", said Manley.

The first incident occurred March 2 in a home in northern Austin. Police have reclassified the first incident from suspicious to a homicide. Investigators say the first two killed were both African-American, which could be the reason they were targeted. Despite similarities, police have not said if the two cases are related.

However, a motive in the three incidents remains unclear at this time.

Authorities believe these bombings could be hate crime related.

None of the packages were delivered to their respective locations via any known mail services. "It is important that people be vigilant", Manley added.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent staff from both its national response team and reinforcements to bolster local field resources. "Every stop will be pulled out".

Gov. Greg Abbott announced a $15,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the person or persons involved in the package blasts.
