911 calls reveal panic brought by Austin package bombings

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A year after a series of deadly package bombings in Austin, police have released several 911 calls that show the chaos and panic that occurred after those explosions took place.

The 911 calls were released to the Austin American-Statesman and KVUE-TV in response to a request under the Texas Public Information Act.

In one 911 call on March 12, Sandra Jones can be heard saying “there is blood everywhere” after her grandson, 17-year-old Draylen Mason, and his mother had opened a package that exploded.

Mason was one of two people killed in the series of explosions that also injured four others.

Police say the suspected bomber, 23-year-old Mark Conditt, blew himself up on March 21, as officers closed in to make an arrest.

A motive for the bombings remains unclear.
