Texas Bombings Suspect Killed Himself as Police Closed In
Thursday, 22 March 2018 02:46 WIB | GLOBAL |Amerika

The suspect in a string of deadly bombing attacks that terrorized Austin, Texas over the last three weeks killed himself early Wednesday, detonating another bomb in his car as police closed in to arrest him.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said that authorities zeroed in on the suspect, identified as Mark Anthony Conditt, a 24-year-old unemployed white man, in the last day and a half and spotted his vehicle at a hotel in the Austin suburb of Round Rock. He said that while police were waiting for tactical teams to arrive, the suspect drove off but ran into a ditch on the side of a highway.

When members of a SWAT team approached, Manley said, the suspect detonated an explosive inside his vehicle. The blast knocked back one officer, who sustained a minor injury, while another fired his weapon at the suspect.

Manley said authorities believe that Conditt was responsible for six bombs, including five that detonated, killing two people and seriously wounding at least five others.

But authorities warned residents in Austin and its environs of the possibility that more bombs had yet to be found.
