NY, NJ bombings: Suspect found sleeping outside bar, survives shootout. The man suspected in Saturday's bombings in New York and New Jersey has been captured after a frantic manhunt and shootout. Ahmad Khan Rahami was in surgery after a shootout Monday with police in Linden, New Jersey, authorities said. He was shot and taken in a stretcher to an ambulance, his right shoulder bloodied and bandaged. Ahmad Khan Rahami was wounded in a shootout with police in Linden, New Jersey. Rahami is suspected of bombings Saturday in New York City and Seaside Park, New Jersey, and is believed to be connected to pipe bombs found Sunday night in Elizabeth, New Jersey, sources said. "We have every reason to believe this was an act of terror," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. Rahami was captured after the owner of a bar in Linden, New Jersey, found him sleeping in the doorway of his bar Monday morning and called police. Harinder Bains, owner of Merdie's Tavern, said he had been watching CNN on his laptop from another business he owns across the street. He said he recognized Rahami and called police. But two big questions remain. What was the motive? And is anyone else responsible?
