Package bomb kills teenager in Texas

The first of Monday's attacks killed a 17-year-old boy and wounded a 40-year-old woman, both of them black. Police are investigating whether or not the explosion is linked to another deadly explosion on March 2 when a man was killed at another residence.

Authorities have not said whether that blast was also caused by a package bomb or if the victim, like those hit in the two confirmed bombings, is black.

Manley said in all three cases, the victims found the packages just outside their front doors. and brought them inside, where they blew up.

The packages that exploded on Monday were not delivered by any mainstream commercial shipping services, such as Federal Express or United Parcel Service, Manley said.

He warned residents to watch out for unexpected boxes left outside their homes, without picking them up, and to report anything suspicious to police.

This explosion occurred southeast of downtown Austin in the 6700 block of Galindo Street, near the intersection of Montopolis Drive and East Riverside Drive.

Shortly after the news conference ended, police were called to investigate another explosion in a different part of east Austin. A 75-year old woman was left in critical condition after another reported explosion.

"We are praying and thinking of her through her recovery in this incident", Manley said.

"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 is not clear whether or not the victims were the intended recipients of the explosive packages, but earlier Monday, prior to the third explosion, Manley said he is not limiting the scope of the investigation. Today's bombings are similar to a March 2 incident that killed Anthony Stephan House after he opened an unmarked package at his house on Haverford Drive. He said officials believe this explosion is releated to two previous explosions - one that occured earlier on Monday, another that happened 10 days ago. None of the official mail carriers - the USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL - delivered the packages Monday, according to police.

In a tweet Monday, organizers said, "SXSW is heartbroken by the explosions in Austin" and asked the thousands of festival attendees to notify the authorities of anything suspicious. Monday's first blast resulted in the death of a 17-year-old boy and serious injuries to a woman in the same house.

"We're not ruling anything out at this point", Manley said. She was taken to a hospital with potentially life-threatening wounds.

A teenager has died and a woman is seriously injured after a package exploded at a home in Austin, marking the second such explosion this month at a home in Texas' capital city.

Special Agent Michelle Lee, a San Antonio-based spokesman for the FBI, said the agency responded to both events and was assisting Austin police, who were leading the local investigation. There are about 15 miles (if walking) between the first explosion and the last.
