A man being sought in connection withexplosions in Chelsea and Seaside Park, New Jersey has been taken into custody following a shootout, Linden police said.

The arrest came just hours after the FBI, NYPD and New Jersey State Police issued bulletins and photos of Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan with an address in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

Linden police said they found Rahami after officers responded to a call of a man sleeping in a hallway of a local business Monday.

When an officer approached the man, he raised his head and that’s when the officer recognized him as Rahami, Capt. James Sarnicki with Linden police told CBS2.
