Austin Bomber identified and killed by one of his explosives

Law enforcement sources have named Mark Anthony Conditt as the suspect in Austin’s string of deadly bombings.

Conditt, 24, was killed by one of his explosives earlier this morning.

He is believed to have been a resident of Pflugerville, Texas, a town just north of Austin.

The incidents associated with Conditt included three package bombs that detonated at residences in Austin, then an explosive triggered by a tripwire, a package bomb that went off at a FedEx distribution center about 65 miles southwest of Austin in Schertz, and finally a second package that was found intact at a different FedEx center.

The final explosion, which killed Conditt, took place early this morning when he reportedly detonated the bomb as police approached his car.
