WANTED! Update: CAUGHT!
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, is being sought in connection to the Chelsea bombing, Assistant Commissioner for Communication and Public Information for the NYPD J. Peter Donald tweeted.
Caught in Linden, N.J. after a SHOOTOUT with police. Suspect and 2 police injured.
In just a few days, Ahmad Khan Rahami went from virtually unknown to a suspected serial bomber.
Police captured Rahami after a shootout Monday in New Jersey, ending the hunt for the man wanted for a New Jersey explosion and a bombing in New York that left 29 people injured.
Sources say they believe Rahami is linked to an explosives-laden backpack found in Elizabeth, New Jersey — a city where Rahami had lived.
While authorities believe they have their main suspect, they’re still trying to figure out a motive — and whether Rahami had help.
