Teenage boy killed, woman injured in Austin explosion

Teen Killed When Packages Explodes at Home Woman Also Injured

The blast killed a 17-year-old man and injured a 40-year-old woman.

After finding similarities between the cases, Chief Brian Manley said it is important for the Austin community to be vigilant and not handle unknown packages left on their front doorstep.

The third blast happened around noon Monday and critically injured a 75-year-old woman. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said his office's Criminal Justice Division would offer a reward of up to US$15,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person or people involved in the package bombs.

Anna Marie Castillo said she lives five houses from that blast site.

"Enjoy yourself. Have a good time", Police Chief Manley told festivalgoers. There is now no description available of a possible suspect or suspect vehicle. They also said her mother, Maria Moreno, was hurt. She was reported to be in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.

Austin Police, ATF and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are all working together.

"As the investigation continues, the state of Texas will provide any resources necessary to ensure the safety of our citizens, and quickly bring those guilty to justice", he said in a statement. But he said it's not clear the victims knew each other directly, or if they were specifically targeted.

"It looked like small terrorism", he said.

Festival organizers did not immediately say whether they would be taking extra precautions.

Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that an explosion Monday in southeast Austin injured a woman in her 70s, who has been hospitalized.

Neighbors on both sides of the home were evacuated as a precaution until they were confident that there was not a second package. The man had received a delivery at his home in the northeast section of the city. Anthony Stephan House died after the explosion on his front porch around 6:55 a.m. March 2, in the 1100 block of Haverford Drive, which is about 12 miles away from Oldfort Hill Drive neighborhood. They suspect the same person is responsible for the 3 incidents and are analyzing the type of explosives. Both incidents are being investigated as homicides.

"We do not have a specific victimology or ideology that we have identified", said Manley. Authorities said they were looking into whether the bombings could have been a hate crime, noting that the explosions killed two black people and wounded a Hispanic woman.

"When the victims have picked these packages up, they have at that point exploded", Manley said during an appearance Tuesday morning on KXAN, an Austin television station.

Three exploding packages in ten days, leaving two people dead. They are collecting evidence that will be delivered to a lab for analysis. USPS says it did not deliver the second package. "From that angle, you could actually see the house that got the package sent to them".

What triggered the devices to go off: The devices have exploded at different times after they were discovered.
