The New York Police Department and the FBI are looking for 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami for questioning in connection to the New York City bombing.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio warned that the naturalized citizen from Afghanistan could be armed and dangerous. An explosion in Manhattan on Saturday injured 29 people. A pressure cooker device was also found blocks away, but it didn’t explode.
A pipe bomb also exploded Saturday in New Jersey and five explosive devices were found near an Elizabeth, New Jersey, train station.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said it looks like Manhattan bombing could be act of terrorism with foreign connection, according to the Associated Press. FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser said agents stopped “a vehicle of interest in the investigation” of the Manhattan explosion Sunday night.
