The Austin Police Department are investigating a possible serial bomber after two people were injured following an explosion in a residential area of Austin, Monday, following three similar explosions in recent days.

The incident followed three package bombs that exploded in Austin in the last 10 days, killing two African Americans. According to police, racism has not been ruled out as a motive.

So far, the connection between the latest blast and the previous explosions has not been confirmed. However, Brian Manley urged the residents not to touch any unknown objects and stay in their homes.

The Austin Police Department have urged all residents within a half mile radius of the explosion to stay inside their homes until they can declare the neighborhood safe.
