Teen killed, woman injured after reported explosion in Central East Austin

The scene of a deadly package bomb explosion in East Austin

Authorities say a package that exploded inside of an Austin home on Monday, killing a teenager and wounding a woman, is believed to be linked to a deadly package sent to another home in Texas' capital city earlier this month.

Emergency personnel from Austin-Travis County EMS, Austin police and fire responded to the 4800 block of Oldfort Hill Drive at 6:44 a.m., EMS officials said.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters that both the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting in the investigation.

Manley said Monday's incident is very similar to another explosion that happened March 2, 2018 where another person was killed after finding a package on his front steps that exploded.

No one else was injured. Police said they know what the explosives devices in each case were but could not elaborate due to the integrity of the investigation.

Officials are now warning the community to be aware of suspicious packages found. Police say to not handle any suspicious package found on a front porch, but to instead call 911 so they can inspect it.

It's the second exploding package death in the past 10 days in Austin. The woman who was injured was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Manley said they do know that the two victims in both cases were African Americans and they can not rule out that the incidents were hate crimes. Manley said in both cases, the suspect delivered the packages during the nighttime, and the victims found them in the morning on their doorstep.

Since then, authorities have not released any information on the device that caused the explosion, nor have they named anyone who may have been involved.
