Austin Bombings

It’s the fourth time in a month, Austin, Texas will be hit with a bomb blast and this has continued to stir a lot of concerns that a serial bomber might be on the loose.

What actually makes the Sunday blast terrifying is that it was left on the side of the road in a residential area and may have been triggered by a tripwire, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.

Two men in their 20s, riding bicycles in the neighbourhood were reportedly injured in the Sunday blast.

The three previous bombs were stuffed inside packages and left on residents’ doorsteps.

And unlike the victims of the previous blasts, the two men injured in Sunday’s explosion are white, Austin police said. Both men are expected to recover.
