BREAKING! The Austin Bomber’s Reign of Terror Comes to an End

Written by Onan Coca

The diverse law enforcement agencies hard at work in Austin, Texas should be commended for the way they were able to come together to bring an end to the “Austin Bomber’s” reign of terror.

For the last three weeks the bomber, who we now know was a 24-year old man by the name of Mark Anthony Conditt, had terrorized the Austin community with his explosive packages.

The police were able to finally identify the bomber after seeing surveillance video of him delivering two of the bomb-packages to a local FedEx.

From there it was only a matter of time before they were able to track him down after his vehicle was spotted in the parking lot of a Round Rock, Texas motel.

While police gathered and set up a perimeter, waiting for tactical units to arrive, Conditt jumped in his car and fled the scene.

The police gave chase and Conditt eventually drove into a ditch, setting up a violent confrontation with the police who quickly surrounded him. Authorities say that while they attempted to arrest Conditt peacefully, the bomber had no intention of doing so, detonating 2 more bombs as the police closed in.

It would seem that the Austin Bomber preferred ending the chase on his own terms, with his own weapons, rather than being arrested or killed by the police.

Witnesses to the confrontation speak out about what they saw:

The death of Mark Anthony Conditt would seem to bring an end to the terrifying tension that has plagued Austin over the last month and a half (you can see a timeline of events here).

During that time 6 bombs have exploded in Texas, killing 2 people and injuring several more.

Police still have NO MOTIVE for the attacks, and have not yet announced whether they believe Conditt was working on his own or if he had any accomplices.
