  • Package detonates outside Beaumont church, police say

Federal and local investigators are on alert for a possible serial bomber after a package left at the front door of a Southeast Texas church exploded - the second such incident in the last two weeks. He declined to comment on potential suspects, motives, components used in the bomb, or any connection to previous devices, citing the ongoing investigation. No one was injured in the detonation because it occurred at a time when no one was at the church.

The explosion caused minor damage to the building, Beaumont police said. However the All Saint's Episcopal School and the church were evacuated as a precaution.

While trying to open the package, the worker noticed a note, and took the package back outside before contacting police, authorities said.

At a news conference Thursday, Beaumont police Chief James Singletary asked members of the public to call 911 if they see a package they feel is suspicious. We will update with more as soon as we receive confirmed information.

Balke found blown out windows, holes in the walls and:traces of the traces of the "detonated package" according to Doyle's post.
