An unexploded bomb was found at a FedEx distribution facility outside of San Antonio Tuesday. This is the sixth dangerous device intended to do harm on the streets of Austin, Texas in recent days, and the second at the same facility. A hazardous materials team is currently investigating the latest package.

On Monday night, a box filled with shrapnel and nails exploded at the FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas and left one employee with ringing ears, according to police. The package, which thankfully did not reach its destination, reportedly detonated on a conveyor belt.

The first four explosions in Austin in the past few weeks were set off by mysterious packages delivered to multiple individuals' door steps, killing two people.

President Trump reacted to the latest news Tuesday, telling reporters that the serial bomber is "sick" but that his administration will get to the bottom of the terror.

Austin Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are offering a $115,000 reward to anyone who can offer information that can help with the investigation.
