2 deadly package bombs in Texas capital are linked


The cites of both explosions were homes owned by black families, and they are now being investigated as "suspicious deaths", potential homicides and potential hate crimes, though the authorities have not ruled out possible links to terrorism.

After two people were killed by explosive packages left on their front doorsteps within 10 days of each other, police are investigating both cases as homicides and believe they could be connected. Both explosions occurred in the early-morning hours.

Austin, Texas police are responding to reports of a package that exploded at a home in east Austin Monday. Investigators haven't released information about the device or possible suspects.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is responding to the scene to assist the Austin Police Department, as is APD's bomb squad and its robot. Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services took a woman in her 40s to Dell Seton Medical Center, and she is expected to be okay, Austin police confirmed at a press conference.
