The suspect in the New York-area bombings case over the weekend has been charged with five counts of attempted murder after a shootout with police officers Monday afternoon.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan immigrant, was arrested in Linden, N.J., after law enforcement officials discovered him sleeping in a bar doorway. He is being held on a $5.2 million bail and remains hospitalized for injuries sustained during the shootout with police, which left two cops wounded.
The Justice Department has not indicated if it will file charges against Rahami.
Tri-state authorities cited fingerprints and surveillance video at the Manhattan bombing scene as key to their investigation and the quick capture of the suspect. It is unclear whether Rahami has received a defense lawyer yet.
