UPDATE (9/19/16 11:20 a.m.):
Ahmad Khan Rahami, the individual the FBI identified as wanted for questioning in connection with the Saturday bombing in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood as well as an earlier explosion in Seaside Park, N.J., has been arrested, the New York Times reports. Rahami was reportedly apprehended after a shootout with police in Linden, N.J.
A source tells a local ABC affiliate that it's still unclear whether Rahami was working alone or as part of a larger group. "A source says authorities were able to identify Rahami with help from a cell phone left behind with an un-exploded pressure cooker found on West 27th Street," ABC reports.
We will continue to update as more information becomes available.

A person of interest has been named in connection with the explosion that took place in New York City on Saturday night and injured 29 people. According to the FBI, 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami "is wanted for questioning in connection with an explosion that occurred on September 17, 2016, at approximately 8:30 p.m. in the vicinity of 135 West 23rd Street, New York, New York." Reports suggest the explosion may be related to other bomb-related incidents that took place in Seaside Heights, N.J. and Elizabeth, N.J. over the weekend.
The FBI says Rahami is a U.S. citizen who was born on January 23, 1988 in Afghanistan. The 5-foot-6, nearly 200-pound man has brown hair, brown eyes, and brown facial hair, according to the FBI. His last known address was in Elizabeth, N.J.
On Monday morning, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged anyone who sees Rahami to call 911 immediately. "I want to be very clear that this individual could be armed and dangerous," de Blasio said.
Police are still investigating the NYC bombing. On Sunday, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said the attack didn't appear to have any link to international terrorism, though that could change with new evidence. On Monday morning, Cuomo told CNN, "I would not be surprised if we did have a foreign connection to the act."
At this point, the FBI has not released any further information with regards to Rahami's potential involvement in the NYC bombing, but they are asking for the public's help in locating him immediately.
