"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.
In Austin, authorities have been combing for clues to the four explosions there, the first three of which involved cardboard packages that were left in front yards or porches and weren't delivered by the US Postal Service or services such as UPS or FedEx, police say. Officials onsite said a woman reported ringing in her ears from the blast after the medium-sized package detonated on a conveyor belt, but sustained no injuries. Schertz is a San Antonio suburb that is roughly an hour's drive southwest of Austin.
The package that exploded, Paxton said, had been addressed to an Austin resident.
"Starting today we chose to anything that is already sealed up and package we are going to open it up and inspect and make sure that there isn't anything problematic inside", Altsman said. SAPD later said McManus misspoke.
Lee didn't have details about the size, weight or description of the package. There was no immediate word about whether that package contained explosives. "It appears that the source of the suspect packages was a private package delivery office in Sunset Valley".
"We're very concerned that with tripwires, a child could be walking down a sidewalk and hit something", Christopher Combs, FBI agent in charge of the bureau's San Antonio division, said in an interview.
The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were among those working with local officials in Austin, Schertz and San Antonio. The city's fire department said a hazmat team was there to help with the investigation. But it also means law enforcement must investigate each one.
They called in the bomb squad, and federal law enforcement were also there.

American Idol Kid Is Pissed Katy Perry Kissed Him
When Glaze walked into the studio, he told them that he liked working as a cashier because it helped him meet "cute girls". People are saying Katy Perry "forcibly kissing" an American Idol contestant this week is unacceptable in the #MeToo era.
He added that the person responsible for the bombings had previously been "very sophisticated in going around surveillance cameras". What are we going to do?
Authorities suspect the parcel bomb is linked to the four bombs that have killed two people and injured four others in Austin this month. Police say that explosion was more sophisticated, having been triggered along a street by a almost invisible tripwire.
The latest Austin bomb, on Sunday, used a trip wire and injured two.
There were no serious injuries in the incidents, and the company has shared evidence with authorities related to the packages and the person who shipped them, the company said.
An earlier version of this story said that San Antonio Police Chief McManus reported that there was a second suspicious package at the Schertz facility.
The blast on Tuesday, March 20, happened at a FedEx ground distribution center on FM 3009 Highway in Schertz, Texas. "I want to continue to remind our community to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack or anything that looks out of place, do not approach it. Call 9-1-1 immediately".
The ATF could not confirm that the latest explosion is associated with the Austin blasts, ATF spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.
When asked how he sees the case, Adler said, "I certainly know there is significant fear and terror being felt by people in the community".
