A sixth bomb has exploded in Austin, this time in the South Austin area. The blast occurred at a Goodwill store, injuring one. The Austin Police Department urged residents to avoid the area as EMS crews continued to assess the damage caused by the bomb.
The latest bomb comes as Austin deals with a reported serial bomber who has been setting off explosions in the area since March 2. Of the five previous bombs, two men were killed and four other people were wounded.
It’s the second bomb to be detonated in Austin today. Before dawn Tuesday morning, a bomb exploded inside of a package around 1 a.m. as it passed a FedEx shipping conveyer belt near San Antonio. The FBI and other agencies confirmed that the blast was related to the previous bombs.
