It brought an end to a almost three-week spate of terror in the Texas capital, but not before explosions killed two people and injured several others.
KVUE TV reported that the man was tracked down to a hotel in the nearby city of Round Rock, where police attempted to arrest him.
The man stopped the vehicle at the side of the road and as the Austin Police Department's SWAT team approached the vehicle, "the suspect detonated a bomb inside the vehicle, knocking one of our SWAT officers back and one of our SWAT officers fired at the suspect as well". Manley told reporters that when officers approached Conditt's auto, he detonated a bomb, knocking one officer back and wounding him.
Using what they call "video evidence" and witness information, investigators tracked 24-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt's vehicle at a hotel along Interstate 35 in Round Rock.
Authorities released few details about the suspect, except his age and that he was white.
He later attended Austin Community College from 2010 to 2012, but he did not graduate, according to a college spokeswoman. I enjoy cycling, parkour, tennis, reading, and listening to music.
Conditt's six posts on his "Defining my Stance" blog in 2012 included arguments in favour of the death penalty and against same-sex marriage, which at the time was legal in only a handful of states.
Jeff Reeb, who lives near Mark Conditt's parents in Pflugerville, Texas, north of Austin, said he saw the accused serial bomber a week or two ago.
CBS affiliate KEYE in Austin published what it said were photos taken from security cameras of the suspect, wearing a blue baseball cap, gloves and possibly a wig of long, straw-blond hair as he dropped off packages Sunday at a FedEx office in Austin.
Pflugerville Mayor Victor Gonzales told The Associated Press on Wednesday that police had surveillance on the home overnight Tuesday, though he said he didn't personally know the family.
Jay Schulze, who has lived in the neighborhood for 13 years, described the home that was under police scrutiny Tuesday night as a bit rundown and a "a weird house with a lot of people coming and going". They weren't delivered by the US Postal Service or services such as UPS or FedEx, police say.

Jaylen Barford will be at the line when play resumes. "On paper we are the underdogs", Paul Jorgensen admitted. The Razorbacks shot over 40 percent from 3-point range this season, which was historical in its greatness.
"Oh my gosh, no", Mary Conditt said, speaking on the phone from Colorado.
"Last Tuesday, about 3, 4 o'clock in the morning, and she was asleep, and something just so loud made her pop up", said Valentine.
In a statement to CNN, Mark Anthony Conditt's aunt, identified only as Shanee, said that the family had "no idea of the darkness that Mark must have been in". The second package was intercepted at a facility near the Austin airport.
The fifth device, another package bomb, exploded in a FedEx ground facility in Schertz, TX, on March 20 and injured one person.
A law enforcement source has identified Conditt as the serial bombing suspect who blew himself up after a short pursuit.
Police warned on Wednesday of the possibility that more bombs had yet to be found.
But the police chief cautioned that there may be other devices out there because they "don't know where the suspect has been the past 24 hours".
Authorities initially believed the bombings may have been hate crimes because the victims of the earliest blasts were black, but they backed off that theory after Hispanic and white victims from different parts of the city were also affected.
Fred Milanowski, an agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, said it's "hard to say" whether Conditt acted alone, but explained that authorities believe he built all of the bombs that were detonated in the area since March 2.
He urged residents to be vigilant, saying they don't know where the bomber has been for the past 24 hours and if he sent additional packages. She says the school is working with Austin police to provide any information they need.
Local police evacuated neighbors earlier Wednesday, it added. "Great job by law enforcement and all concerned!", the president tweeted. The suspect's death followed a day of rapid-fire developments in the case. One worker reported ringing in her ears and was treated at the scene.
A series of bombings beginning on March 2 left Austin, a fast-growing city of 1 million people, on edge as the bomber moved from parcels left on doorsteps to one activated by a trip wire to at least two sent via FedEx.
