The suspect is deceased and has significant injuries from a blast that occurred from detonating a bomb inside his vehicle.
>> Conditt, who was unemployed, lived in the Austin suburb of Pflugerville, reportedly with two roommates. Neighbors there offering an all too familiar description of a guy who mostly kept to himself.>> It looked like a pretty typical young college age guy that was just hanging out over there.
I hadn't actually personally met him myself. But it's just nothing out of the ordinary, really.>> Though he had been a person of interest, police say they don't know a motive, or if Conditt acted alone or had accomplices, but they believe he is responsible for the six explosions around Austin.
Two African American men were killed, leaving police to wonder if the crimes were racially motivated. Five others were injured in the blasts. Conditt's parents, who also live in the town, known as friendly people.>> They're as nice of family as you'd want to have. Nicest neighbors as you'd want to have.
>> Police are warning the community to remain on alert saying other packages planted by Conditt or potential accomplices, may still be out there.
