1 Injured In New Package Explosion At Goodwill Store in Austin


Authorities in Austin are responding to reports of a possible explosion at a Goodwill store. 

Authorities say at least one person has been injured by the blast. Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that emergency crews transported a ~30s male with potentially serious injuries, but they aren't expected to be life-threatening.

Authorities say the explosion was caused by an incendiary device, and not a package bomb. They say this device wasn't related to the previous bombings. 

This is the sixth explosion to rock the Austin area since March 2nd. Two people have been killed and four other have been seriously wounded by the explosions. 


Earlier this morning, a package exploded at a FedEx shipping center in Schertz, which is located about 60 miles south of Austin. A second suspicious package was reported at another FedEx distribution center near the Austin airport. FBI officials say the packed "contained an explosive device." 

Authorities say both packages were related to the series of bombings. The FBI, ATF and Austin police are working to identify a suspect, but no arrests have been made so far. 

This is a breaking news story. More details will be added as they become available.
