Police Confirm the Austin Package Bomber is Dead

The Austin package bomber is now dead after an overnight confrontation with police.
Chief Manley says it unfolded in Round Rock after Mark Anthony Conditt, 23, began to consistently show up on their radar amid this bombing investigation:
Manley says thanks to receipts and cell phone tracking, they found Conditt near the Red Roof Inn at I-35 and Old Settlers.  But as this alleged bomber began to drive off, police moved in to stop him.  

Shortly after that, Conditt pulled off into a ditch and detonated a device in his car, and a SWAT officer did open fire after that, so this is also being called an officer-involved shooting.  That alleged bomber was pronounced dead on the scene.  And Manley does say he believes Conditt is behind all of the bombings across the area.
