#Breaking: At least 2 males have serious but not life-threatening injuries in Austin, TX after the city is hit with at least the 4th explosion in a series of bombings over the last 3 weeks. A performance by The Roots was also canceled at #SXSW this weekend due to a bomb threat.

Another device went off in Austin: 9801 Brodie Ln. But according to the ATF's twitter: "ATF responded to a reported incident in the 9800 block of Brodie Lane, Austin. It was not a package bomb. An incendiary device was located, one injured. At this time, it does not appear to be related to the #packagebombmurders."

I think that's a little too preliminary. And it'll make the public even more anxious, in my opinion.

I hope they catch this person(s) soon. It took appox 17 years to catch the Unabomber.

I mean think about all these bombings. I'm having a hard time imagining it is just one person. We had motion sensitive bombs to start with, then a tripwire and now shipping bombs. Someone has some crazy skills not to have blown themselves up making 7 bombs so fast.

KBTX is reporting that the Goodwill bomb tonight is not related (really, that was quick to decide)

What was initially reported as an explosion occurred at a Goodwill store in the 9600 block of Brodie Lane north of the intersection of Brodie and West Slaughter Lane, east of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

But police said in a tweet at around 8 p.m. that the incident does not appear to be related to the series of package bomb explosions in the city dating back to March 2.

"There was no package explosion in the 9800 block of Brodie Ln.," police said in the tweet.

"Items inside package was not a bomb, rather an incendiary device. At this time, we have no reason to believe this incident is related to previous package bombs."

The Austin Bomber (Mark Anthony Conditt) is dead. I somewhat feel disappointed. Of course I don't support what he did. I guess it stems from the fact that we might not ever know his motive (if there was one).

I wonder if Conditt was "AustinBomber" guy on reddit.

And of course he won't be labeled as a domestic terrorist...

I bet he's left behind clues, maybe even a message in case he got caught.

They think they had him on camera yesterday morning, so either that helped find him or that was him on reddit and they were able to trace the message back to him. Regardless, they caught him pretty quickly after those two events.

Did you see the surveillance footage from the FEDEX location? He had his head wrapped with something that looked like a towel and had gloves on. That should have been a quick indicator to someone that something isn't right with this guy. Just hope he hasn't left any surprises.
