  • Austin police investigate an officer-involved shooting on La Naranja Lane

The first incident occurred March 2 in a home in northern Austin. The race of the elderly woman injured on Monday is unknown.

Austin police are issuing a warning to people who see packages outside of their home.

Investigators have not determined a motive for the attacks, but it is possible that the victims could have been targeted due to their race, he said.

Austin Police are asking residents to call 911 if they receive a package they are not expecting. In the meantime, Manley said, "it is appropriate for residents to be concerned". But "be aware, look for things that are suspicious".

SXSW began Friday in downtown Austin, bringing in thousands of people to the state capital.

Authorities have not said whether the most recent explosion was caused by a package bomb like the one that exploded earlier Monday. As of Monday evening, police had received at least 34 "suspicious package" calls since around 8 a.m.

Authorities have identified one victim.

Manley said that a second package was discovered near the site of the initial Monday explosion and that some residents and media members were evacuated or pushed farther from the blast site as authorities determined whether it was a bomb. Later, an explosion put a 75-year-old Hispanic woman in critical condition with "life threatening injuries", Manley said. Her injuries are considered life threatening.

A 39-year-old man was killed in the March 2 attack. Police have classified the incident as a suspicious death.

Over the span of 10 days, three explosions have come from packages that were placed on the front door steps at three different homes in Austin.

"These are very powerful devices", he said, declining to be specific.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton urged all Texans to be cautious.

It is not clear whether or not the victims were the intended recipients of the explosive packages, but earlier Monday, prior to the third explosion, Manley said he is not limiting the scope of the investigation.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent staff from both its national response team and reinforcements to bolster local field resources.

Governor Greg Abbott announced a $15,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the identification and arrest of the person or persons involved in the deadly package blasts.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler, speaking Monday at a news conference, said, "This is still a safe city". "You knew that something bad was happening", Reynolds said, adding that the victim's body was riddled with holes as emergency responders took her out of the house and into an ambulance. "We're not saying that's the cause, we're just looking at any possible motivations that would link these two cases together".
