At least two men suffered serious injuries Sunday night after a reported explosion in southwestern Austin, Texas, emergency workers said.

Crews did not immediately confirm whether the explosion was the result of a package bomb. Three such blasts over the past month in Austin have killed two people and critically wounded at least two women.

Sunday's reported explosion unfolded on Dawn Song Drive, the Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted. "At this incident, 2 patients have been identified and are prepping those patients for transport."

Austin has been plagued by bombings in the form of package bombs.

From the article:

Quote
Two men in their 20s suffered non-life threatening injuries in the blast, including one who had nails in his leg, according to KVUE-TV. South Austin Medical Center officials said the men were in good condition.

The intent, being on the ground, was injury rather than quick death.

Quote
Manley originally suggested they could have been hate crimes since all the victims were black or Hispanic, but now says that investigators aren't ruling out any possible motive. The two victims in Sunday's blast were two white males, Manley told ABC News on Monday.

IF these are all from the same bomber, victims are being targeted based on their lifestyles and daily habits. In this last case the bomb seems to have been placed on a route taken by many bicycles (and possibly runners as well).

Seems the cops caught up with the guy and he saved everyone the cost of a trial by blowing himself to smithereens.
