NYPD Are Actively Searching For Ahmad Khan Rahami As Suspect In Weekend Bombing
The authorities have been working overtime to figure out who was responsible, and it looks like they’ve got their man according to NYDailyNews…
The man wanted in connection with the weekend bombings in New York City and New Jersey was arrested Monday morning after he shot a police officer, officials said.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, was taken into custody after shooting the officer in Linden, N.J. around 11 a.m., according to the NYPD.
Three men had come across Rahami as he was sleeping outside a bar, recognized him and called police.
In the ensuing confrontation, Rahami exchanged gunfire with police, shooting one officer in his protective vest. The officer was struck in the head by a fragment of the bullet, but is expected to survive.
The NYPD released the name and picture Monday morning of a man being sought in connection for the New York City bombing over the weekend.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, is the first person identified in connection with the incident.
Rahami is a naturalized United States citizen who was born in Afghanistan, according to the FBI. His last known address was in Elizabeth, N.J., where authorities found pipe bombs in a garbage can Monday morning.
The FBI raided the Elizabeth address in the morning.
New York City Mayor de Blasio said Rahami is believed to be armed and dangerous.
