On Monday in Austin, Texas, a teenager was killed and a woman left seriously injured after a package exploded in a blast that officials say is similar to another bombing that happened in Austin earlier this month.

Austin police said they were called to the northwest area of the city just before 7 a.m. about an explosion in a residential neighborhood, Fox News reported.

"There are similarities we believe these cases are linked at this time," Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters.

Manley continued, saying, "These [packages] are not coming through the United States Postal Service that we've determined at this point."
