NEW YORK (CBS NewYork) — A man being sought in connection with an explosion in Seaside Park, New Jersey and another blast in Chelsea is believed to have been taken into custody following a shootout, Linden police said.
Authorities Monday had been looking for Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan who was wanted in both incidents Saturday.
“The suspect pulled out a gun and fired at the officer and striking him in the abdomen,” Sarnicki said. “The gentlemen got up and started walking down the street in a westerly direction. I’m told that he was randomly discharging his handgun and one of the officers was able to get close enough to him and return fire.”
