A warning is going out to residents of Austin Texas after 2 deadly explosions today killed a teenager and injured at least 2 others. This is the third such explosion this week.

www.foxnews.com...


A teenager was killed and at least two women were seriously hurt after a pair of explosions rocked homes in Austin on Monday -- just two weeks after a third blast which authorities said is linked to at least one of Monday's incidents. Austin Police said they received a call about the first explosion in a neighborhood on the northeast side of the city around 6:45 a.m., after the 17-year-old resident found a package on the front step, brought it inside, and opened it in the kitchen where it exploded. "It is very similar to the incident that occurred in Austin on March 2," Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters.


The packages are being placed on the front porch and authorites don't believe the Post Office or any other delivery service left it.

Stay safe Austin..Hopefully they catch this person soon and it doesn't take years like the unabomber.

My condolences to the victims of the tragedy. I hope the FBI/Law Enforcement do their jobs on this.

There is no known motive at this time, but Manley said both blasts took place at homes of African-American residents so authorities "cannot rule out that hate crime is at the core of this."


From the Fox link provided in the OP.

I dunno, that seems kind of weird to me if its hate crime related. Must be a real nut job doing this. But then again, the world's full of them!

It's too early for authorities to be speculating on motive being race, if it's only because the first victims are black. They wouldn't be saying race if victims were white. Maybe they have other reasons, and i haven't heard the race of the 3rd victim yet.

edit..third victim is black also.

This is terrible, how very tragic for these families. May God lead the minds and hands of the investigators to get to the root of this terror plot against these innocent Texans.

I think the kids from Florida should go on media tour asking for package control.

No one under 20 can buy a empty package box. Assault packages need to be banned

One of the victims is Hispanic. Anyone know anything about the area all these happened in? Austin's population is only about 8% black according to the 2010 census, but 35% Hispanic or Latino. Like most cities they are likely concentrated in particular neighborhoods. If the attacker is targeting a particular area that happens to have a high black and/or Hispanic populations, it could simply be a coincidence.

They really shouldn't be spreading racial animosity unless there's some evidence to back it up.

I just heard a reporter say the 2 scenes from today are very near each other. The phrase he used was "around the corner". On Google maps 4801 Oldfort Hill Dr and 6701 Galindo St are over 5 miles from each other.

Wow, a harmless old lady. Not to dismiss the other victims, but how f#ing depraved do you have to be to bomb an old lady?

The police aren't certain the victims were specifically targeted. They may have been chosen at random. The attacker may not have even known whose house he was leaving the devices at.

Looks like the bomber spent the weekend building. Probably stop for a few months then a bunch that will go off in a day that he has been building up. Just my theory. No sane person will open a package they didn't know was coming

Shouldn't be anymore deaths then really because people will now know NOT to pick up and open boxes which have been left on their porchfront with no details of where they came.
