Another explosion in Austin.  

Austin-Travis County EMS initially reported they were responding to reports of two possible explosions in Austin, but only one scene was located. 

2 men in their 20's were injured in a blast in the 4800 block of Dawn Song Dr. Austin-Travis County EMS says the victims' injuries were serious, but they are expected to survive.

Two people died and others were injured earlier this month in separate parcel bombings in Austin.  It isn't known if the latest  blast is connected to the earlier bombings.

Earlier today, Interim Chief Brian Manley said the reward is increasing from $50,000 to $100,000 to help lead authorities to the person or persons responsible. The governor is also offering a separate reward of $15,000.

At the beginning of the press conference, Manley stated they believe the recent explosions were meant to send a message.

“The person or persons understands what that message is and are responsible for constructing and delivering these devices,” he said. “We hope that person or persons is watching and will reach out to us before anyone else is killed out of this event.”
