‘Incendiary device’ explodes in Austin, injuring one

Austin authorities were responding to another package explosion at a Goodwill store on Tuesday night, a report said.

One person was injured and police and fire officials were responding to the scene at the nonprofit store on Brodie Lane in Austin, according to the KABC-TV.

A man in his 30s was transported to a local hospital with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.

A Goodwill spokesperson told KVUE-TV that the victim was an employee who was looking through donations when the package exploded.

It was not immediately clear whether the bombing was related to the other five which have taken place in the area in recent weeks.

The Goodwill store was just miles from a FedEx center where it is believed a bomber attempted to send two explosives — onedetonated at a FedEx center near San Antonio.
