Austin-Bound Package Explodes At FedEx Facility

CBS News reports:

The San Antonio Texas Fire Department says a package bomb bound for Austin has exploded at a FedEx distribution center in Schertz, Texas, hurting 1 person, a FedEx employee who apparently suffered a non-life-threatening “percussion-type” injury from the blast. The FBI and ATF are at the scene.

An FBI agent told CBS “it’s more than possible” that this package is related to the explosions that have occurred in Austin in recent days. The package exploded shortly after midnight on Tuesday.

ATF and FBI agents are at the scene of the FedEx facility analyzing components of the explosive device to see if they see any similarities of ingredients or components that are “a signature” that would link this package explosion to the other four bombing incidents in Austin, reports CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton.
