The main suspect in the New York and New Jersey bombing plots, Ahmad Khan Rahami, has been taken into custody injured after a police shootout, NBC News has reported.
NBC New York said the shootout took place in Linden, New Jersey, with Rahami shooting an officer with a bullet proof vest non-fatally in the chest in the exchange.
Rahami was wounded in the shootout, the report said, but the extent of his injuries remain unknown.
The Afghanistan-born American, 28, was wanted in connection with the Manhattan bombing that left dozens injured and could be linked to pipe bombs found in New Jersey.
The NBC News report cited four law enforcement sources.
Authorities are investigating whether Ahmad Rahami, who was not on US counter-terrorism lists, acted alone or as part of a terror cell.
Investigators studying CCTV footage may have identified the same man at each location, law enforcement sources reported to have said.
At least 29 people have been injured in an explosion which rocked Manhattan. Here's what we know so far.
