Free barbecue: Restaurant sends a big thank-you to law enforcement after Austin bombings
HOUSTON – Barbecue is one way Texans show their gratitude, and that’s just how one Austin restaurant is saying thank-you to law enforcement for their work to find a suspect in the string of bombings that rocked the state’s capital.
Iron Works BBQ offered free lunch on Wednesday to law enforcement, including on-duty police officers, FBI and ATF agents.
As a big thank you to our @Austin_Police, @chief_manley, @MayorAdler, @FBI @FBISanAntonio @ATFHQ Iron Works Barbecue is offering FREE LUNCH TODAY to ANY and ALL on duty Police Officers, FBI and ATF Agents today. We are proud of you, and THANK YOU. #AustinBombings @ArtAcevedo— Iron Works BBQ (@ironworksbbq) March 21, 2018
The gesture comes after the bombing suspect, Mark Anthony Conditt, 23, detonated an explosive device inside a vehicle Wednesday morning as a SWAT team approached. Conditt died from his injuries.
Authorities are reminding the city and beyond to remain vigilant because it's unclear what Conditt had been doing prior to his death.
