  • SUSPECT IDENTIFIED BY NYPOD: Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28.
New York authorities have identified a suspect — an Afghanistan-born naturalized U.S. citizen — in the explosion of improvised device Saturday night in Manhattan.

No firm word yet if he's suspected to have a tie to explosive devices found in New Jersey, though several media outlets are reporting that a search underway there is connected to Rahamia.

UPDATE: Five people have been taken into custody in the bombing investigation.

UPDATE: Breaking news says Rahmadi was taken into custody after a shootout with police.

An arrest in 38 hours? Pretty good police work.

Across the country, authorities are still looking into the background of a young Somali man killed by a police officer after he stabbed nine people in a Minnesota mall.
