Austin Bombing Suspect Dead After Blowing Himself Up as SWAT Team Approached Car

Austin Police

The serial bomber who terrorized residents of Austin, Texas is dead after blowing himself up with an explosive device as a SWAT team approached his car early Wednesday morning.

A tactical SWAT team tracked the 24-year-old white male suspect to a hotel in Round Rock, a city in the Austin area, police said at a press conference.

Authorities tracked his vehicle until he pulled over on Interstate 35 and detonated an explosive device inside his vehicle as a SWAT team approached the car, according to Austin Police Chief Brian Manley.

Manley said a SWAT team “tried to apprehend him on the side of a highway,” when an explosive device went off inside the vehicle, knocking one officer back. The officer sustained “minor injuries,” Manley said.

Another member of the SWAT team fired his weapon and, as is standard practice, he was placed on administrative duty, officials said.

“The suspect is deceased and has significant injuries from a blast that occurred from detonating a bomb inside his vehicle,” Manley said.

The incident happened at around 3 a.m. East Coast time, according to NBC News affiliate KXAN.

The suspect’s death was welcome news to residents of Austin whose daily lives were disrupted by a series of bombings that killed two people and injured nearly a dozen more.

President Donald Trump praised law enforcement for their hard work in tracking down the suspect.

“AUSTIN BOMBING SUSPECT IS DEAD. Great job by law enforcement and all concerned!” Trump tweeted early Wednesday.

The police, FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are at the scene, the ATF tweeted.

Even though the suspect is dead, officials warned local residents to be on the lookout for suspicious packages that might contain explosives.

Over 500 federal and local law enforcement officers joined in the manhunt for the suspect after bombs started going off around the Austin area beginning on March 2nd.

officials said an old hand grenade that exploded in a Goodwill store inside a strip mall in Austin on Tuesday, March 20, was not related to the series of bombing incidents. The old grenade, which was among items donated to the Goodwill, exploded in the hands of a Goodwill employee in his 30s, injuring him.

A reward for $250,000 was offered for information leading to the capture of the bombing suspect.

    morning roses! prey for me in this snow. id rather blow myself than be snowed in again /s

  • SumthinSweeter

    Law Enforcement really did do a good job. Didn’t think they had any leads. Hopefully no more bombs are circulating around in Austin.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Suspect was allegedly a 24 year old white man. No name no pic, just a suspect. Conveniently dead now.

    BS story.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    multiple people died, including several minorities and this man didnt say a word until the suspect was caught.

    They refuse to deem this man a terrorist…(suicide bomber, terrorist, domestic terrorist)

    What do you need to do in order to be classified as a terrorist? asking for myself.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So no mention that the bomber was a white dude?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you’re implying that this was a false flag operation?

    If so what was the purpose?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You need to be non-white and or/non-Christian to be classified as a terrorist.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    To scare black folks into playing their position. Another scare tactic with no real outcome. As long as they keep us confused and afraid we can’t assemble. Government involved terrorism.

    Not Ironic that it takes place in Texas

    This shit is chess not checkers.

  • bhavana

    What????

  • nomika brown

    He was a white man

  • Phillybruh

    I think everyone expected him to be a white man. I think as the day goes that will get mentioned a time or two.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Another unarmed black young man shot and killed by popo.

    RIP Stephon Clark.

    So now what? Another protest or public outcry?

    What are black MEN going to do?

  • Phillybruh

    What you got planned, where do I donate or sign up?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    None of what you said makes sense.

    Terrorism doesn’t keep people from assembling–actually it’s just the opposite but whatever dude.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I am not a black man. I am a black woman. What I can do is support the black man in his decision on how to address this racist system.

    Black men are the head, woman are the neck. We can support the head but cannot direct the body where to go.

    As a black woman I can speak out and start a petition that only black officers patrol majority black communities. White cops aren’t empathetic to black peoples period. We should not have them patrolling us like cattle. Killing us on whim.

    We need to list n to our ancestor Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey and demand separation and owning our own shit governing our own people.

    We need the black man strength- not donation. We need you on the line ready to lay down your life for the sake of the future generation if there is going to be one. You ready to die for change? That’s the real question black man!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    You and I normally disagree, but today I second your thoughts on this guy’s comments!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    You are clueless “dude” and I don’t have time to educate the uneducated misguided negro. That’s what books and history is for.

    I’m talking to those that might understand how this shit works and has been working.

  • Kanyade

    whose donating old hand grenades to Goodwill? and why?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Both you moist coons can move to the back. The only thing you assembling is an excuse on why you can’t see things for what it is

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Tragedies like bombings and serial murders when there is no motive or pattern to a crime tend to bring communities together.

    However, blacks like every other race in America is stratified by economics and social status.
    Unless we are overtly re-segregated by race again

    I doubt blacks will live like we did during Jim Crow.

  • Kimberly King

    They should have told the world his name and showed everyone his ugly ass, white evil face.

  • Phillybruh

    I think calling anybody coons gets your point lost, I often find that black people who are quick to use that word are the ones who scream the loudest but do absolutely nothing. Except scream the loudest!

  • stevetheque

    Great! Now piece him back together and blow his ass up again and feed him to the pigs!

  • Soda

    Speak for yourself. I am not a neck!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Terrorist your worst have created the laws.. .. They want you to live by them long as it keeps you in control all the while doing the very exact thing that terrorist do… Kill steal and destroy … That’s why… Don’t expect them to actually classify people like themselves as terrorist because the elephant in the room is most of your militant Armed Forcesand politicians are also terrorist themselves .. They just give themselves labels like judges presidents CEO etc to mask that fact … Of course they sugar coat certain people’s shyt

  • zeta4life

    MAY HE REST IN SHIT!!!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This dude thought he was gonna walk into FedEX to send off a package and they wouldnt have cameras in there that would show who he is?

    I tell you, these guys almost always get caught, simply because they’re never as smart at they think they are. Sooner or later they end up tripping themselves up.

  • zeta4life

    BISSSSSSSHHHHH!!!!

  • zeta4life

    Only one person I know would have that damn ROLL TIDE AVI…

    LMAO!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I’m just glad it wasnt one of us. For a minute I was afraid it was might be a brotha.
    On the TV news it showed a picture of a black man, but that was actually Anthony House, one of the victims.

  • Yoni7

    Good! YT men are the most hateful, terroristic demons on this earth. Everything they touch, they fukk up! EVERYTHING! Name something they haven’t had a hand in destroying? I’ll wait.

    And while we’re waiting. Have yall discussed the latest killing of an unarmed black man in his backyard by the cops? They said he had a gun, then a crowbar and now his cellphone! I wonder how old the pig was that shot him.

  • Yoni7

    Photos on Conditt’s mother Danene Facebook account show an unassuming young man whose mother worked hard to get him through high school.

    Not everyting is a “conspiracy”, you know?
    Sometimes people do commit crimes like this and the suspect ends up dead.

    But if you want to see his name and pics, somebody posted this link with the info: http://metro.co.uk/2018/03/21/austin-bomber-named-mark-anthony-conditt-24-7404046/

  • You Could Never

    Yep!!!! Thought about you earlier this month and waved my jersey as I rode on down to Marengo County. My eldest aunt passed away. Had to come down to bury a queen. How y’all been? Stay safe during yall tur’nader season!

  • Phillybruh

    I exhale when it turns out that it was a white person.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I’m always wary of these super enlightened, extra-woke negroes and negresses who want to “drop knowledge” on us that we’re all supposedly lacking.
    Those conversations usually lead nowhere.

  • You Could Never

    +1 and times 1000

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You know if it was a black man Breitbart and those other right-wing websites would be on fire right now.
    But he’s white, so they’ll be fairly quiet about this.

    People have way too much time on their hands.
    i just don’t get it. how does someone say to himself. i feel like spending money on bombing materials, then imma take months to build like 50 of them, then i’m gonna pay postage and handling to ship them off then imma hope they go off.

    i will never understand some peoples thought process.

  • tintin

    question. was it the black guy they were showing?

  • tintin

    imagine all the guts that was in that car, yucckkk

  • Solstice

    Yes girl I read that too. The young man was killed in his own backyard. All he had was a cell phone in his hand…of course they claim the officer feared for his life ? Damn shame

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    THE same why the black police officer feared for his life while sitting in a dark alley and someone comes up from behind banging on the car startled him he couldn’t see at that moment and shot that white lady. That same fear? Yes well they charged him with murder for being in fear of his life let’s see if he gets off

  • starbright9449

    lmao

  • Elevated Soul

    Yep…..The terrorist was a Democrat just like I figured….

    I wonder how Fake News aka liberal propaganda prop will play on this….

    I LMAO at Black Democrats who say “he is not one of your own but indeed he is”. It’s funny to me how you distance yourselves from Whites based on the narrative.

  • Gloria

    It is usually a white man. They are the number one terrorist of the world.

  • angrysolo

    all these back to back nor’easters

  • Yoni7

    I hope this cop is put the fukk down! He feared for his life…..but HE was the one with the gun. They need to start arming these fukk boi ass cops with ONE rock. And if they don’t get shot in one year, then they can get a gun………with no bullets.

  • Solstice

    Right!! Sadly I wouldn’t hold my breath…these murders of black men/boys by cops rarely go in the victims favor. ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You have to inject politics into everything, huh? Do you come on here ranting if the person is a Republican/conservative? No.. I guess only “Democrat” killers matter to you.

    You are really a sad individual.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    It is until it is proven otherwise and just because they have some random pic of a white man doesn’t mean government didn’t have a part in this. White people systematically will sacrifice other white people in the name of white supremacy.

    One white person dead and thousand of other black people terrorized. That’s the cost of business to White Supremacists.

    Like I said before, until you know how this works and what white supremacy truly is, everything else will only confuse you.

  • Anunnaki

    Now Start looking for his incest brother, to follow his footsteps….they are predators by nature, again some hides it very well, others, must have the joy of blood…just look at their track record, they start hunting and killing by age 4,

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Politics aside because all that shit serves white supremacy, Black folks are so damn gullible. We believe anything feed to us. No questions asked.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Hello! Manchurian candidate.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Nope but they pic the most innocent picture of this terrorizing killer and post that for the world to see.

    “White pipo can’t possibly be terrorists- look he’s smiling!”

    BS

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Funny all the black men on here- not one saying shit.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Get from me with that white feminist BS. So if you bout it and can take the lead then why don’t you? Why you just sitting here letting these cops shoot us?

    It’s apparent that you think you’re some type of Sistah Souljah but don’t get to thinking that you’re God & all knowing as to what I do or don’t do. All big mouths like you do is talk loud but say nothing. You probably don’t know what a bed wench or coon is, just repeating what you heard from a YouTube video.

    Miss Pro Black yet uses the white man’s derogatory word in reference to her people. How progressive.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    That’s a mighty long reach! Is that all you have to say?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Is that a threat or are YOU just talking shit?

    Easy to talk shit to another black person. Say that to your white racist counterparts!

    It’s easy for blacks to bicker back and forth which is not really my intentions so I’m going to simply end it here unless you decide to take it further.

    Black Power! ??

    Right, and you’ll holler the loudest when a white person calls you the same word. Hypocrite.

  • kekeb

    He probably had a CB/RADIO. plus, when you’re paranoid, you can tell when you’re being followed or watched.
    And there seems to also be some level of military or para military, so he probably knew they were coming

  • kekeb

    probably took 45 was gonna open up them factories he was talking about on them campaign trails

  • kekeb

    Oh no!!! Omg. I don’t even wanna google it. From my experience, San Francisco is not very welcoming of blacks.

  • kekeb

    When its bombings in the area, you do NOT go into a parcel delivery store wearing gloves and holding a package with no return address. Clearly, he was good with his hands, but not so much that brain. Even still, He HAD to know that was suspicious SMH.
    I think he wsntwa to get caught bit was too afraid to kill himself without being sure that the police were on to him

  • kekeb

    Why? We wouldn’t typically kill each other via delivery bombs after the city just elected s black mayor? That screamed racially motivated

  • kekeb

    Right. But they circulate images kf Trayvon Martin shooting a bird SMH. FOH!!!!
    Love your pic btw

  • Yoni7

    Nowhere is, really.
