The Texas bomber has died today. Here is the report below on him.
The suspect behind the wave of bombings in and around Austin, Texas has been named as Mark Anthony Conditt.
Conditt, a 24-year-old white male, was killed on early Wednesday morning after being pursued by FBI and local police officials.
He was named by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday morning.
Officials followed Conditt in a car, where he detonated a bomb that killed him. An Austin police officer also fired a weapon at him.
Police believe Conditt is responsible for the recent spate of parcel and trip-wire bombings in and around Austin, which have killed two people and injured four others since March 2. They have not identified a motive yet.
On March 15, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters that police were investigating whether the bombings were race-related. Two black men were killed, while a black woman, an Hispanic woman, and two white men were injured.
Law enforcement identified Conditt as a suspect after using surveillance footage from a FedEx store in south Austin. They then tracked down the suspect's online browsing history, which showed searches on various shipping facilities, and eventually located his vehicle, the BBC reported.
Police are still trying to figure out where the suspect was in the 24 hours before his death, and are concerned that there may be other devices programmed to explode.
