Police in NY respond to report of explosion

An explosion from an apparent pipe bomb detonated near the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City during rush hour Monday morning, and a suspect has been taken into custody.

A man wearing a homemade device attempted to detonate it, and it either malfunctioned or did not go off the way it was supposed to, according to one NYPD source.

At least three other people suffered minor injuries, including ringing in the ears and headaches.

O'Neill said by the time officers arrived, they found Ullah with burns and wounds to his body. "Thanks to the quick response of these courageous Port Authority Police officers, the suspect was apprehended, there were no serious injuries and the PABT was secured without further incident", O'Toole said.

- Ullah held a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission for-hire vehicle driver's license from March 2012 through March 2015, NYC TLC Deputy Commissioner for Public Affairs Allan J. Fromberg said in a statement to CNN.

No one other than the suspect was hurt in the blast which reportedly happened at 7.30am EST. He also had a pipe bomb and battery pack on him, according to The New York Post.

The A, C and E subway lines were evacuated, NYPD Sgt. Brendan Ryan said.

The weapon used in Monday's attack was "amateur-level", New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference near the explosion site.

Marlyn Yu Sherlock was at a retail store on the main floor of the terminal when people began flooding out of the subway entrance, "screaming, running in panic", she said.

A man with a "possible second device" was detained in the subway tunnel, law enforcement sources told WPIX TV. The family says it expects more from the justice system.
