Austin Bomber Blows Self Up; Princeton Standoff Suspect ID'd; Nor'easter Rages On

The suspect wanted in connection to a series of package bombs in the Texas capital of Austin blew himself up on Wednesday morning as authorities closed in. 24-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt of Pflugerville, just north of the city, is accused of killing two people and injuring four others in 5 bombings in March. Three of the bombings occurred when the victims opened packages sent to their homes. The fourth bombing was triggered by trip wire. The fifth bombing occurred when a package exploded on a conveyor belt in a FedEx facility near San Antonio. Police were able to zero in on Conditt through surveillance footage at the shipping facilities and signature parts used to construct each bomb. They located him inside his vehicle in a hotel parking lot. When members of SWAT approached the vehicle, Conditt denotated an explosive inside. Authorities do not yet understand a motive for the attacks.

New Jersey authorities have identified the armed man killed in a standoff with police at a restaurant in Princeton on Tuesday. 56-year-old Scott Mielentz of Lawrenceville, NJ, but previously of Newtown, PA, was shot and killed by police after a nearly 5 hour standoff. It began around 10 a.m. at the Panera Bread restaurant on Nassau Street across from Princeton University. The school is on spring break, but two campus buildings were evacuated as a precaution. Employees and customers were able to flee the building. The standoff ended at 3 p.m. The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office said "negotiators attempted unsuccessfully to get the suspect to surrender peacefully." No one else was injured in the incident.
