SXSW is on in Austin. And someone is delivering package bombs to area houses.

If you’ve been following the news, two people in Austin, Texas, have been killed as the result of anonymous parcel bombs delivered to private homes. The packages just showed up on front steps and were not delivered by mail or any official delivery company.

There’s no indication if the victims were related in any way and so far, there’s no motive. Authorities, though, are checking out all possibilities.

This has created concern at South By Southwest, which is now underway in Austin. Organizers and attendees don’t need any kind of incident resulting in death like the high-speed chase we saw back in 2014.

We’ll have to keep an eye on this.
