Law enforcement officials identified the suspected Austin bomber who blew himself up as police converged on him as 24-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt of suburban Pflugerville, where he lived with two roommates.

Pflugerville Mayor Victor Gonzales said Conditt lived in his city, about 17 miles northeast of the capital and near where a package bomb killed a 39-year-old man March 2 — the first of four bombs.

Police tracked Conditt to a hotel in Round Rock, a city in the Austin metropolitan area, using a variety of tactics — including cellphone triangulation — and surveillance video from an Austin FedEx, NBC News reported.
