At least one person has been injured. Speculation is running rampant right now as to whether or not this is related to the previous 5 bombings in Texas, in spite of what Austin PD is officially stating.
This follows the explosion at a FedEx facility earlier today near San Antonio from a package intended for an Austin address.
