President Trump praises law enforcement in Austin bombing case


President Trump is reacting to news the suspected Austin bomber is dead. Trump posted on Twitter, "AUSTIN BOMBING SUSPECT IS DEAD. Great job by law enforcement and all concerned!"

The suspect bombings blew himself up as he tried to drive away from authorities closing in on him early this morning.  Police officers and FBI agents had tracked the suspect to a hotel in Round Rock.  Authorities say they identified the suspect, a 24-year-old man, over the course of the past 24 hours from security video at a  FedEx store and receipts for what they say were suspicious  transactions. 

Two people were killed and four injured in the string of  package bombings that began March 2nd. 

Austin's Police Chief is warning  people to be remain cautious because investigators don't know what packages the bomber might have sent in the hours before he killed  himself.
