Authorities are urgently searching for a “person of interest” in the New York City explosion, identified as 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, according to a memo circulated by the NYPD.
The FBI also released a wanted poster for Rahami with his photo, saying he is “wanted for questioning” related to the bombing. Rahami is a U.S. citizen originally born in Afghanistan, the FBI said. He is considered armed and dangerous.
An emergency alert was sent out this morning asking people to call 9-1-1 if Rahami was seen.
