Alleged Austin 'serial bomber' kills self with explosive

Austin bombing suspect identifiedThe alleged Texas serial bomber has been identified as 24-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

Conditt was from Pflugerville, Texas, a suburb of Austin, the city where he allegedly focused his 20-day bombing spree, officials said.

1 injured in Austin blast that police say is not related to package bombings

Austin incendiary deviceOne person was injured Tuesday evening in a blast at a Goodwill store in Austin, officials said. Though it is the sixth blast this month in or near the capital city, Austin police said there was no reason to believe it was related to previous package bombs.

Police said the item inside the package was not a bomb, but an incendiary device.

Police, fire and EMS officials responded just after 7 p.m. Tuesday to the 9800 block of  Brodie Lane, near West Slaughter Lane, where a man in his 30s had been injured, according to Austin-Travis County EMS.


Judge Temporarily Blocks Mississippi’s 15-Week Abortion Ban

Mississippi Women's Health Clinic - the ONLY center open in the stateA federal judge has temporarily blocked a new law in Mississippi that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, the strictest limit in the nation.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves on Tuesday granted a request for a temporary restraining order by the state’s sole abortion clinic. On Monday, Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510, codifying the ban into law.

Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Mississippi’s only abortion clinic, and The Center for Reproductive Rights quickly sued for a restraining order to block the law.


Package explodes at Texas FedEx facility, likely linked to Austin serial bomber

Bomb explodes at Texas FedexA package bomb that exploded at a FedEx facility near San Antonio early Tuesday is likely linked to attacks by a serial bomber that have killed two people in Austin, a federal official said.

"It would be silly for us not to admit that we suspect it’s related” to the four bombings in Austin this month, FBI San Antonio spokeswoman Michelle Lee said.

The incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. at the FedEx Ground distribution center in Schertz. Schertz Police Chief Michael Hansen said the explosion came from a package in the sorting area of the facility. One person was treated for injuries and released at the scene, he said.

U.S. Supreme Court rejects Arizona challenge to 'Dreamers' program

SC Refuses to Hear DACA challengeThe U.S. Supreme Court on Monday required Arizona to continue to issue driver’s licenses to the so-called Dreamers immigrants and refused to hear the state’s challenge to an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of young adults brought into the country illegally as children.

The case centered on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created in 2012 under Democratic former President Barack Obama that Republican President Donald Trump already has sought to rescind. Those who signed up for DACA are shielded from deportation and given work permits.

The high court refused to hear Republican-governed Arizona’s appeal of a lower court ruling that barred the state from denying driver’s licenses to people protected under DACA.


Police blame Austin attacks on serial bomber

Serial bomber in Austin

Austin's police chief says the four bombings that have killed two people and injured four others in Texas' capital city this month are believed to be the work of a serial bomber.

Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference Monday that Sunday night's explosion that injured two men marks a "significant change" from the first three because it was triggered by a tripwire that would have hit any random person walking by it. The first three attacks were carried out with package bombs left on people's doorsteps.
