Over the past month four bombs have gone off in Austin, Texas that have injured two men and killed two others. We understand that the two men killed were African Americans, and another person injured was of Hispanic descent. Last night a package bound for Austin exploded at a Fedex facility, injuring one person:
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. Schertz is a San Antonio suburb that is roughly an hour’s drive southwest of Austin.
One FedEx team member suffered minor injuries when a “single package exploded” at the ground sorting facility, company spokesman Jim McCluskey said Tuesday in a statement. An ATF spokeswoman earlier had said no one was hurt.
McCluskey would not provide any additional specific information about the blast. Based on preliminary information gathered at the scene, Lee said there could be a connection with the four Austin explosions, which killed tow people and injured four others over 17 days starting March 2.
