This March 21, 2018, file photo shows law enforcement investigating the scene in Round Rock where Mark Conditt blew himself up as authorities closed in.

The Austin Police Department (APD) confirmed this week no officers will be indicted for shooting at the man behind several bomb attacks last spring.

A Williamson County grand jury declined to charge an APD officer who fired on Mark Conditt just before he killed himself with a bomb in his car in Round Rock.

APD Chief Brian Manley said aerial police video of the incident shows officers acted appropriately.

The bombings killed two people and injured four others. The case is still under investigation.
