Original post

Update: Bloomberg reports that Austin Police say that the latest incident may not be linked to the others as the items inside the package were not a bomb, but an incendiary device.

so is that good news? Or is there now two serial package exploders in Texas?

Shortly after Congressman Michael McCaul told reporters that investigators had uncovered surveillance footage of a possible suspect in the Austin bombings, authorities are reporting an explosion in Southwest Austin.

ATCEMS tweeted after 7 pm Tuesday that officials were responding to Brodie Lane and West Slaughter Lane.

Officials said a male in his 30s was transferred to St. David’s South Austin with potentially serious injuries that are not expected to be life threatening.

No other people were injured, according to KVUE.

Authorities said there may be a second device at another location in South Austin.

This is the sixth bombing in the Austin area since March 2.
