The Latest: 2nd Explosion Badly Injures Woman in Austin

Source: The New York Times

AUSTIN, Texas — The Latest on deadly package bombings in Austin, Texas (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Police are responding to another explosion in Austin that badly injured a woman, hours after a package bomb killed a teenager and wounded a woman in a different part of the city.

Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that an explosion Monday in southeast Austin injured a woman in her 70s, who has been hospitalized. A second woman from that address has been hospitalized with an unrelated medical issue.

Authorities have not said whether the most recent explosion was caused by a package bomb like the one that exploded earlier Monday.

Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference Monday that investigators believe the deadly blast Monday is linked to a March 2 package bomb that killed a 39-year-old man in another part of the city.

1. Three in 10 days and two today.

They’re all in east Austin so far, too. Chief Manley said earlier there may be a hate crime link since the first two victims were black. I don’t know if the third woman was yet or not.

4. Me, too.

So far a 39 and 17 year old are dead and this poor 70 year old woman was said to have possibly life threatening injuries. They need to catch this nut and fast.

22. I live in Austin. Had to sit down

with my kids and had this conversation. We told them if we get any package, don't touch it, and to come get one of us, and we'll take care of it. It made me sick telling my autistic 11 and 8 year old not to touch a package cause it might be a bomb.
I hope they catch this idiot quick.

6. So when are multiple package bomb's not linked to a terror threat?

When the recipients are black?

14. When the perps are native-born whites, it's not terrorism. Just a lone wolf or similar.

Pardon me while I barf for having to say that.

16. Yup. Just another "fine individual" who suddenly went bad.

Who can say why white guys stockpiling armaments and building bombs will just suddenly go crazy and use them?

3 deadly package explosions in Austin appear connected, police say

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/12/us/texas-austin-blasts/index.html

By Tina Burnside, Ralph Ellis and Joe Sterling, CNN

Updated 4:40 PM ET, Mon March 12, 2018
Police: Deadly blasts in Texas connected






(CNN)Three explosions that occurred when people picked up packages outside their residences appear to be connected, Austin, Texas, city Police Chief Brian Manley said Monday at a news conference.


A Monday morning explosion killed a 17-year-old African-American boy and also injured a woman at the house. A second Monday explosion left a 75-year-old woman in critical condition, the chief said. A March 2 blast killed a 39-year-old African-American man.
All the explosions occurred when people who lived at the residences went outside and picked up packages, Manley said. The packages were not delivered by the postal service or delivery services like UPS or FedEx, he said.

Third explosion (March 12)
Second explosion (March 12)
First explosion (March 2)

"The evidence makes us believe these incidents are related," he said, saying investigators have not come up with a motive or whether anybody has claimed responsibility. It's not known if the victims knew each other or if they were targeted, he said.

18. Damn!

Now might be a good time to think about getting one of those Ring front porch cameras. If the perp rather than the FedEx/UPS guy is setting the packages at their doors, they can see who it is.
