“Serial Bomber” Attacks Austin
A fourth device exploded in Austin, Texas on Sunday after having been triggered by a tripwire. This device was placed on the side of a residential road making it the first time it was not placed on a resident’s doorstep. All four bombs have similarities, which led Austin Police Chief Brian Manley to state, “We are clearly dealing with what we expect to be a serial bomber at this point.” At first, the attacks seemed to be racially motivated (the victims of the first three attacks are African American and Hispanic), but Sunday’s victims are white and experts are saying that the “latest victims were not specifically targeted”. There have been two fatalities so far, and four people have been seriously injured.
