Update: 11:23: The suspected terrorist is in custody after a shootout in Linden, New Jersey. He was known to authorities, but not for new issues. He was not on a terror watch list according to Catherine Herridge of Fox News.
Khan was sleeping in a doorway and recognized by an officer after it was reported by a businessman. The shootout then took place according to the Linden mayor who spoke with Shep Smith on Fox News.
A police officer was shot but saved by the vest, another was hit by shrapnel, and a third was suffering from stress. All three officers were taken to the hospital according to the mayor. Khan appears to have been shot in the shoulder and leg.
Taxpayers will get to pay for his medical care and his lawyer.
Rahami is tied to the bombs used in the two NJ terror attacks/attempts and the NY bombing.
Original Story: 07:00: There is a manhunt underway.
A 28-year old suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was born in Afghanistan, is on the run and is a person of interest in the New York City bombing.
As long as he is loose, we are facing another potential terror attack.
The three terror attacks – in Seaside Park NJ, New York City and Elizabeth, NJ – are believed to be tied according to the mayor of Elizabeth NJ.
The FBI released a wanted poster for Rahami and issued an alert which appears to be regional to New York. The poster says he could be armed and dangerous.
Governor Cuomo now says a foreign connection will be found. The New York City mayor, a communist, Bill de Blasio won’t admit it’s even an act of terror.
The address of a home being searched by FBI agents in Elizabeth, New Jersey is linked to a person with a similar name.
An emergency alert was sent out this morning asking people to call 9-1-1 if Rahami was seen.
CAIR has said these people are individuals and have nothing to do with Islam. Of course they do have something to do with Islam – the radicalized version.
