Bomb Suspect Undergoing Surgery
(Elizabeth, NJ) — The suspect in the New York City bombing is undergoing surgery for wounds suffered in a shootout with police in New Jersey today. Union county prosecutor Grace Park said law enforcement had received information that Ahmad Khan Rahami might be in the area. Linden, New Jersey officers exchanged gunfire with Rahami outside a bar, where he was hit. Park said two officers were wounded, one in the abdomen after a bullet struck his vest, and the other from glass that cut his forehead. Rahami is a suspect in the bombing in a Manhattan neighborhood that injured 29 people Saturday. Reports said a search of his family home turned up materials that could be used to make bombs.
