Austin police are responding to a reported package explosion at a Goodwill store, just hours after a package exploded in a FedEx facility that injured a worker.

A man in his 30s was reportedly injured at the store in southwest Austin, according to a post by Austin-Travis County EMS on Twitter shortly after 7:30 p.m. CT.

It’s too soon to tell whether the incident is tied to the string of bombings across the region that have killed two people and left several others injured.

The man injured was a Goodwill employee who was going through donations when he was injured, a Goodwill spokesperson told KVUE.

The reported explosion comes hours after two bombs were found in FedEx facilities in the area. One of the packages in Schertz, about 20 miles northeast of San Antonio and 65 miles south of Austin, exploded and injured a worker.

The second package was reported to authorities, who “disrupted” the device, the FBI said in a statement.

There have been six bombs in total since March 2 when the attacks began.
