Elizabeth is currently the focus of the law enforcement investigation into Ahmad Khan Rahami, the prime suspect in the Manhattan bombing this weekend who is wanted by the FBI. It is unknown if the events unfolding in Linden are related to the Rahami investigation, though the unfolding story out of Linden is located less than 2.5 miles from the First American Fried Chicken restaurant owned by Rahmi’s family as well as the apartment Rahami was most recently living in.
This story is developing and we will update as more information becomes available.
UPDATE 1:29 p.m. EST: NBC 4 New York is reporting that Rahami was not on any known terror watch list.
