The NYPD released the name and picture Monday morning of a man being sought in connection for the New York City bombing over the weekend.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, is the first person identified in connection with the incident.
Rahami is a naturalized United States citizen who was born in Afghanistan, according to the FBI. His last known address was in Elizabeth, N.J., where authorities found pipe bombs in a garbage can Monday morning.
The FBI raided the Elizabeth address in the morning.
New York City Mayor de Blasio said Rahami is believed to be armed and dangerous.
It is “too early to say” if Rahami has ties to a terror network, de Blasio said.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday there might be a “foreign connection” behind the bombing.
