Meanwhile, authorities also closed off an Austin-area FedEx store where they believe the bomb that exploded was shipped to the distribution center.

"A package had been traveling along the automated conveyer when it had exploded", Schertz Police Chief Michael Hanson said. One female employee sustained a concussion when the package detonated.

"If this is connected, we're seeing a major shift where the person may be beginning to rely on professional carriers to distribute these explosive devices", Plohetski said. She was treated at the scene.

The package was on a conveyor belt when it detonated and there were about 75 workers inside the facility when the explosion occurred.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent James Smith declined to answer reporters' questions about whether the package that blew up was destined for Austin.

Ex-FBI agents say law enforcement officers are likely sifting through microscopic forensic evidence and analyzing behavioral evidence in order to find a suspect or suspects.

FedEx released a statement saying the suspect shipped "a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement".

McClusky said in a statement, according to CNN, that "no additional specific information" related to the package will be released at this time. "There is no secondary device at the Schertz facility".

The 911 caller stated there were nails and metal in the bomb and that the package was going to Austin.

In Austin, police arrived at the FedEx Ground distribution facility near the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport around 6 a.m. "Hundreds of federal agents, multiple federal agencies, hundreds of agents working on this outside of Austin and Texas".

"Due to the nature of this incident and past events, we have all of them on scene as a precautionary measure to ensure the community's safety", Austin interim Police Chief Brian Manley said.

Earlier Austin police deployed a hazardous materials squad to a FedEx shipping facility near the city's airport to investigate reports of a suspicious package.

Police repeated prior warnings about not touching unexpected packages and issued new ones to be wary of any stray object left in public, especially ones with protruding wires.

The first was the one that exploded in Schertz. Authorities roped off a large area around the shopping center in the enclave of Sunset Valley.

About eight Federal Bureau of Investigation agents filtered in and out of the store.

"There is an army of law enforcement folks that are here", Austin Mayor Steve Adler told NPR's David Greene about the effort to end the bombing threat.

Another official onsite said it is not believed Schertz or San Antonio were the intended targets. "The other stores surrounding Fedex are open".
