A serial bomber may be on the loose in Austin, Texas as investigators are trying to determine whether an explosion early Tuesday at a FedEx facility outside San Antonio is connected to four explosions that have rattled the Austin, Texas, area this month.
The most recent blast happened inside a FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas, FBI San Antonio spokeswoman Michelle Lee said.
Background: Schertz is a San Antonio suburb that is roughly an hour’s drive southwest of Austin.
Based on preliminary information gathered at the scene, many believe there could be a connection with the four Austin explosions, which killed two people and injured four others over 17 days starting on March 2.
The NAACP called the incidents “acts of domestic terrorism” and called for vigilance and caution for communities in Austin.
While Police Chief Brian Manley published a full statement asking residents to remain vigilant.
“I want to continue to remind our community to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack or anything that looks out of place, do not approach it,” he added.”
