NY, NJ bombing suspect in custody after shootout with police
NEW YORK - Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man suspected in bombings in New York and New Jersey, is now in custody after a shootout with police, sources said.
Police have connected the New York City and New Jersey shore town bombings and said that was sought for questioning in both.
New Jersey State Police say that information comes from the FBI.
28-year-old Rahami is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan. His last known address was in Elizabeth, New Jersey, where the FBI executed a search warrant on Monday morning.
An explosion in Manhattan on Saturday injured 29 people. A pipe bomb also exploded Saturday in Seaside Park ahead of the race for Marines and sailors, but no one was injured.
The apartment search began after one of five devices found at the nearby Elizabeth train station exploded while a bomb squad robot attempted to disarm it. No one was injured.
