Teen killed after package explodes at Texas home

One person dead one hurt after reported explosion in Austin Texas

Police are now investigating if the two explosions are linked.

Several hours later, APD responded to a second explosion on Galindo Street in Southeast Austin, which has reportedly killed a 75-year-old woman.

Residents meanwhile have been warned to avoid opening unexpected items left at their doorsteps and to report anything suspicious to police.

When law enforcement arrived at the scene, they found that the explosion happened in the kitchen of the home.

A woman in her 40s was also injured and was taken to the hospital for potentially life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured in the explosion.

A package found outside a home in Austin, Tex., exploded early Monday morning after it was brought inside, killing one resident and injuring another. They are working to determine if the second package was delivered by a company or dropped off by an individual. That explosion occurred about 12 miles north of Monday's first blast.

The second explosion on Monday happened while police were wrapping up a press conference for the Oldfort Hill explosion.

An ABC affiliate in Austin reported that the original call was made at 6:44 a.m. on Monday. "It's so tragic", Daniel Sledge, one of House's neighbors, recently told KEYE.

Betsy DeVos Says Teachers Shouldn't Be Armed With Assault Weapons
Although the schools themselves are doing worse, there may be "pockets" of students doing better, she said. In other words, Betsy DeVos thinks its possible that half of all college sexual assault victims are lying.

Manley said she was facing "life-threatening injuries". Manley said the woman who was injured in that attack is a 40-year-old woman who remains hospitalized. "We can not rule out that hate crime is at the core of this", Manley said.

The incident follows a deadly explosion in Austin on March 2. That case was originally being investigated as a suspicious death but has now been reclassified as a homicide investigation. He said at this point police are not ruling out that these incidents could be hate crimes, but cannot confirm at this time that they were.

However, a motive in the three incidents remains unclear at this time. Per CNN, Austin Police have determined that the targeted properties are all owned by African-Americans, and they're therefore trying to determine whether these are a hate crimes.

Police said they believe the person or people delivering the package did so at night, and are warning people to be aware of deliveries they are not expecting. In the case that residents are confronted with such a package, Manley instructed people to call 911 immediately.

"We are imploring the community, if you know anything about these attacks, it is imperative that you come forward", he said.

Manley added that it is best not to manipulate the suspicious packages because anything could trigger them to detonate.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said the APD and the USPS will work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ATF National Response Team along with other agencies to investigate and they will "leave no stone unturned". The Office of the Governor's Criminal Justice Division is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspect or suspects involved.
