The Austin Bomber has been arrested after shots were reportedly fired and the suspect detonated a device, according to local news station KVUE-TV. Photos of the suspect were released by US Marshal's Lone Star Fugitive Task Force - Austin Division which appeared to show the bomber wearing a wig and entering the FedEx where one of the packages exploded late Monday night.

Local Media station KVUE reported from on the scene where the suspect was apprehended early Wednesday morning. The photos seem to indicate the bomber was wearing a disguise when he delivered the package, but the surveillance footage may have led to his undoing after the package unexpectedly exploded at the facility on route to Austin.
