A bomb exploded at a FedEx facility near San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday morning.

One employee was injured in the incident.


The explosion occurred at a distribution center in Schertz, Texas - about 65 miles southwest of Austin, Texas, where a string of packages have exploded in the past month.

"Of the 75 people working at the facility, only one complained of injury described as a non life threatening percussion type injury".


"All inbound and outbound packages are in limbo, and transport vehicles are in gridlock", the department said on social media. The first three bombings were packages, apparently hand delivered police said, that exploded after being picked up by residents at the homes. "At this hour, ATF and Federal Bureau of Investigation assets are beginning to arrive".

The explosion follows a series of package explosions in Austin area that have left two people dead and four injured. Two men in their 20s were injured in that explosion, which was caused by a device using a trip wire on a sidewalk in the city's Travis Country neighborhood.
