Got 'em.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, the Manhattan bombing suspect, has been taken into custody just hours after the FBI released his name and information. 

The 28-year old man was found in Linden, New Jersey where he reportedly shot at police officers before being taken down. According to NBC, one officer was shot in the chest during the altercation but was not seriously wounded thanks to his bullet proof vest.

Police believe Ahmad Khan Rahami was not only connected with bombings in New York and Seaside Park, New Jersey, but also the pipe bombs found in a backpack Sunday night in Elizabeth, New Jersey, sources said.

All of this news broke just as President Obama was addressing the New York and New Jersey explosions over the weekend. You can check out his statement, as well as some additional coverage, below.
