Austin police warn of suspicious boxes after 3 package explosions

Austin police warn of suspicious boxes after 3 package explosions

A 17-year-old victim in a series of deadly package bombs delivered to homes in Austin, Texas, has been identified as Draylen Mason, while a law enforcement source revealed the same maker may have constructed the three devices.

"That does not indicate that it is a hate crime", Manley said", but we are not going to rule that out because we don't want to limit anything that we're considering as we investigate this case". Norman is a dentist and a well-known community member. The first victim, Anthony Stephan House, was killed on March 2.

"I took a walking stick and from behind my door, I cautiously tumbled the box over to bring up the label, where I could verify it was addressed to me and from the expected shipper", Mathis said. A 75-year-old woman was rushed to the hospital; she is now in stable but critical condition. "It's an absolute tragedy that he is no longer with us". House was the stepson of Freddie Dixon, a former pastor at a historic black church in Austin, while Dixon is friends with Mason's grandfather, according to the Post.

Dixon was quoted by the Austin American-Statesman in 2015 lamenting how Austin's population growth and prosperity were effectively creating economic segregation by raising the cost of living.

"The most important thing for people to know is that we are a safe city, and we will continue to be a safe city", Adler said.

"Given the fact these people are people of color, that definitely gets people's attention", he said. 'They feel vulnerable, and they should based on the nature of the incidents'.

The FBI and ATF are assisting local police.

Police believe the same person or people are behind the package attacks.

"I don't look at it as terrorism, but it's terrorism of a community for sure", Sherrow said.

Manley gave similar advice: "If you've received a package that has been left on your doorstep or left in your yard or left on your driveway that you were not expecting or that was not from someone you know, then give us a call". They have warned people in Austin not to move or touch any suspicious packages and call 911 immediately instead. Authorities responded to 250-plus calls about parcels without finding any that were explosives. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Friday, March 2: The first explosion occurs 10 days ago on the 1100 block of Haverford Drive.

There's nothing obvious linking the three neighborhoods, other than all were east of Interstate 35, which divides the city. The east side has historically been more heavily minority and less wealthy than Austin's west side, although that has changed as gentrification has raised home prices and rents everywhere. Monday's second explosion, meanwhile, occurred about 5 miles (8 kilometers) south of the day's first blast. But they happened far from the main events and concert venues.
