Deadly Package Explosion Kills 1 Boy, Injures 1 Woman
AUSTIN, Texas — Investigators believe a package bomb that killed a teen and wounded a woman in Austin on Monday is linked to a similar bombing that killed a man elsewhere in the city this month, and they're considering whether race was a factor because all of the victims were black.
The explosion Monday happened inside of a home near the Windsor Park neighborhood and killed a 17-year-old boy and badly wounded a woman, Austin's police Chief Brian Manley told reporters. Shortly after the news conference ended, police were called to investigate another explosion in a different part of east Austin.
Authorities haven't said whether that explosion was also caused by a bomb.
