Deadly package bomb could be linked to earlier Austin attack

Teen killed after package explodes at Texas home

Teen killed after package explodes at Texas home

"We are not ruling anything out at this point", said Manley, who said the intended targets were not clear since multiple people live in the homes where explosives were placed. No one else was injured in the explosion.

The Monday blasts were in homes about four miles apart in East Austin, a predominantly Hispanic and minority area undergoing gentrification after a surge in the city's population. The blast killed a 17-year-old boy and injured a woman.

The third blast happened around noon Monday and critically injured a 75-year-old woman.

"There was a package that exploded inside of the home".

Asked if they were considering it a hate crime, Manley said, "We're keeping our focus as wide as possible so that we don't miss something by focusing too narrowly".

"If you find any suspicious packages on your front porch at your residence, do not handle them but instead call 911 and let us come out and take a look at those packages and ensure that they are safe", he said.

Manley told festival-goers, "There's no reason to believe that you are at any greater risk".

This year's NCAA Tournament is a bit tainted
As the 5-seed in the Big East Tournament, the Friars knocked off Creighton in the first round to advance to the semifinals. OSU is a two seed in the 32-team field, but the Cowboys didn't make the NCAA Tournament in Boynton's first season.

"We will not tolerate this in Austin", Manley said.

Jesse Barba, 77, a neighbor of Herrera's, said he rarely saw her because "she was always helping out with her mother".

Manley would only say that "these are very powerful devices" and "there's a certain level of skill required to move a device like this".

Anthony Stephan House was the March 2 victim.

The two explosions that left two dead are now being investigated as homicides.

After the March 2 explosion, Austin police said they had no indication the blast was related to terrorism.

Manley strongly urged residents to be on the lookout for suspicious packages and to alert authorities immediately. A neighbor, Brandon Rendon, told Reuters the victim was in a wheelchair watering her grass before the blast occurred.

The attacks prompted local and federal officials to plead for Austin residents to refrain from opening packages that they do not recognize or expect or that appear suspicious. When they arrived at the home, they found that the explosion happened in the kitchen of the home and the boy had died from his injuries. The other two bombs killed people whose families have ties, and one of those victims' relatives said he did not know of any connections to Herrera. "He made friends easily and will be missed", he said.

Monday's second explosion - the cause of which was still being investigated - happened in the Montopolis neighborhood, near the airport and about 5 miles south of the day's first blast.

"High explosives are supposed to be stored properly and securely, so it would be a little more hard to obtain high explosives - unless you're in a job that gives you access to them", Key said.

Local police, as well as agencies including the FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, are working on the case.

To attain some ground in the case, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has set out a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person or people involved in the package bombs.

The ATF is processing evidence from the first device at its lab and evidence from the second device will also be sent to an ATF lab for consistency.
