28-year-old suspect wanted in NYC-area bombing

*UPDATE: A suspect believed to be Ahmad Khan Rahami, earlier named as a "person of interest" in the New York City and New Jersey bombings, was taken into custody this morning, according to law enforcement sources.

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.

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.
