Fifth explosion at FedEx as bombing investigation continues


5AM BREAKING NEWS: Report: Police investigating explosion at FedEx facility in Texas. One woman has been injured. These are developing details. Authorities say the package was supposed to go to Austin. Stay tuned in to Houston's Morning News and our San Antonio affiliate WOAI for the latest details. 

San Antonio Fire Department is also reporting details on Twitter.

There are no answers yet in the bombing investigation that is going in in Austin as of yet. But one thing has become increasingly clear.

“We are clearly dealing with what we expect to be a serial bomber at this point,” Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.

And law enforcement would like to speak with this bomber as soon as possible.

“We don’t understand why they are doing this. We have people here that he can talk to, and we would like that to occur. We would like him to reach out and talk to us,” said Christopher Combs with the FBI

And because of all of this, Governor Gregg Abbott took to television, trying to calm down nervous Texans.

“We have so many resources devoted to this. We are going to find this bomber, and we are going to find this bomber soon,” Abbott told Fox News.

The victims of the latest bomb on Sunday night are said to be in good condition at an Austin hospital.

Here in Houston, Police Chief Art Acevedo has promised to help Austin with whatever resources they need and told KTRH everyone, even in Houston, should be aware of their surroundings.

“If you’re not expecting a package, do your homework. If it looks like something suspicious, just call 911 and let us clear it for you,” Acevedo said.

And last night Harris County law enforcement responded to reports of a suspicious box with blinking lights in a park. They determined the box was not a threat.
