New York City, New York–Police continue to comb through evidence from an explosion last night that left 29 injured in a Manhattan neighborhood. Police are trying to figure out if there is a connection to a New Jersey pipe bomb that went off during a charity run for the military and last night’s explosion. The New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, told the media during a press conference on Sunday, “I saw an extraordinary response by the NYPD, FDNY, Office of Emergency Management. Folks said to me in the neighborhood how reassured they were by the speedy response last night and by the continued police presence.” The Department of Homeland Security is actively monitoring and participating in the investigations in New York and New Jersey.
If you have any information about these bombings, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
