Linden, New Jersey – On Monday morning, Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, of Elizabeth was taken into custody after being wounded in the shoulder by police. Rahami was wanted by the FBI in connection for the Saturday night exploded bomb in New York City and five improvised bombs found at the Elizabeth train station in New Jersey, according to police.
Two officers were also reported wounded with non-life threatening injuries in the shootout with Rahami.
The owner of Merdie’s Bar called police after he found Rahami sleeping by the door on Monday morning and recognized him as the suspect wanted by the FBI for the NYC bombing over the weekend.
In another terrorist attack on Saturday night in the U.S., an ISIS suspect identified as Dahir Adan, 22, was killed by a part-time Avon off-duty police officer after he stabbed 9 people, 7 seven men and 2 women who suffered non-life threatening injuries. Avon Police Officer Jason Flaconer shot Adan three times. Each time Adan was shot, he attempted to get up to stab Officer Falconer until Adan collapsed from the injuries and died. Warrants were issued to search Adan’s apartment and his vehicle, which was later towed to a police lot for evidence gathering.
The terrorist stabbing attack was reported at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The shopping mall was reopened on Monday.
The Islamic State-run news agency claims that the suspect killed at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud was a “soldier of the Islamic State.”
President Barack H. Obama announced that the knife attack in St. Cloud and the bombings in N.J. and N.Y.C. were not connected. Adan who wore a security guard uniform during the knife attack is considered a lone wolf in the Crossroads Mall attack in St. Cloud, according to the FBI preliminary investigation.
