Dead, 2 wounded in Texas explosions

A teenager was killed and at least two women were seriously wounded after a pair of explosions rocked homes in Austin on Monday, according to Fox News.

Austin Police said they received a call about the first explosion in a neighborhood on the northeast side of the city around 6:45 a.m., after the 17-year-old resident found a package on the front step, brought it inside, and opened it in the kitchen where it exploded.
