The Austin bomber suspect blew himself up on Tuesday night as police closed in on the killer at an Austin motel.
The 24-year-old killer was in the parking lot of the hotel when he blew himself up.
The man set off his six bomb on Tuesday.
Local officials said authorities identified a suspect in the past 24 hours based largely on information gained after police said the suspect shipped an explosive device from a FedEx store in Sunset Valley.
The Austin bomber had two roommates in his home in Pflugerville about 20 miles from Austin.
Police said the bomber has limited social media presence.
The suspect was on the police radar for the last 24 hours before his death.
Police are outside the Pflugerville home where the bomber lived.
