Austin, Texas has been rocked by a series of package bombings that have killed two people and injured at least 4.

Last night, police had a suspect, 23-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt in their sights, and converged on a motel where he was staying, just as Conditt drove away.

Officers followed Conditt's car which ended up in a ditch.  As SWAT officers approached, Conditt detonated a bomb in his car, killing himself.   One SWAT officer suffered minor injuries.

So what happens when there's a report of suspicious package?  L.A. County Sheriff's Special Enforcement Bureau Tactical Bomb Tech Sgt. John Hansen joined Bill to talk about it.
