There’s been yet another explosion in Austin, this time it was a package left on the side of the road which may have been triggered by a tripwire. Police believe the bombings are related and are warning residents to report any suspicious packages.
“There are indications it was related to the first three,” Mayor Steven Adler said Monday. Police Chief Brian Manley urged residents within a half-mile of the blast on Dawn Song Drive to stay inside until at least 10 a.m. local time Monday so law enforcement could “ensure the neighborhood is safe.”
Earlier bombs have killed two people, wounded two others and put the entire city on edge. Also, The Roots’ Saturday event at Austin’s South by Southwest conference and festival was canceled due to a bomb threat and the suspect is in custody but police say they’re not connected.
