Police in Austin, Texas Warn Residents Not to Open Unexpected Packages The warning comes after multiple packages containing bombs have blown up across the city. The first bombing occurred on March 2, followed by two more bombings on Monday. So far, two people have died and two more people have been injured. We don’t know what the motive behind these may be,” Manley said. “We do know that both of the homes that were the recipients of these packages belong to African-Americans... ...so we cannot rule out that hate crime is at the core of this. But we’re not saying that that’s the cause as well.
