Two people were injured by an explosion Sunday night in Austin, Texas, following three package bombs that killed two people and injured two others earlier this month.

The two injured men were in their 20s and taken to St. David's South Austin Medical Center, according to an Austin-Travis County EMS tweet.

Police are now investigating three explosions that occurred this month and said that they could be crimes of hatred.

The Austin Police Department is investigating the incident and has asked all residents in the area to wait inside their homes and to follow the instructions of officers when given.

The latest incident is the fourth in a series of explosions set in motion by a serial bomber targeting residents in Austin. The first two victims, 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House and 17-year-old Draylen Mason, are connected to two prominent African-American families with ties to an East Austin church and long histories fighting for racial justice and empowerment of the city's African-American community.

Police said all three of those were likely related and involved packages that had not been mailed or delivered by private carrier but left overnight on doorsteps.

"There's a certain level of skill and sophistication that whoever is doing this has, and. we are hoping to use the evidence we have to track them down based on what we are seeing on all three scenes that seem to be consistent", Manley to KXAN news on Tuesday.

At 1:30 a.m., Manley said it was possible that a trip-wire triggered the explosion, a departure from the three prior bombs that were all inside packages. Authorities later arrested a 26-year-old man, and the incident did not appear to be related to any previous explosions.
