New York bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami is undergoing surgery after being shot by police and apprehended in New Jersey, Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said at a press conference on Monday.
Rahami was a suspect in three separate weekend incidents in the New York metropolitan area.
“My understanding is that the suspect is currently undergoing surgery, but unfortunately I don’t have any further details on his condition,” Park told reporters.
