Authorities responded Tuesday night to reports of an incendiary device at an Austin, Tx., Goodwill.

Local law enforcement got a call around 7 p.m. about a package that exploded at a Goodwill store, KXAN reported.

The Austin Police Department later said there was no explosion, but that the store did receive a package containing an incendiary device. They also do not believe that is connected to the other bombings occurring in the area.

 

A man in his 30s reportedly suffered from injuries due to the blast, according to the Austin-Travis County EMS. The department does not believe the man’s injuries will be life threatening.

This incident marks the seventh bombing to occur in the Austin area. Police have already confirmed the six previous explosions are linked, and officers are currently hunting for the perpetrator.
