FedEx bombing

A suspicious package found at a Federal Express facility near San Antonio, Texas may be an unexploded bomb, authorities say. It would be the second explosive device found at the facility today. 

This is a developing story.

Very little is known about the second device, including whether it is actually a bomb. The FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas remains in lockdown while the FBI and ATF investigate.

The FBI would not speculate whether today’s incident is directly linked to four previous bombings that have killed two people in Austin. They have, however, acknowledged the distinct possibility.

Reuters has the latest details.

Police discovered another package at the same location that they believe is also loaded with an explosive device, San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus told reporters.

“There was one other package that we believe was also loaded with an explosive device that they are looking at right now,” McManus told reporters in Schertz, which is about 20 miles northeast of San Antonio.

Just after midnight, a package exploded at the facility in Schertz. One person suffered concussion injuries.

Officials did not say if the latest incident was the work of what Austin police believe could be a serial bomber responsible for the four earlier devices that killed two people and injured four others.

The blast at the FedEx facility in Schertz was the fifth in the state in the last 18 days. If it is linked to the others, it would be the first outside the Austin area and the first that involves a commercial parcel service.
