I will update this post as I learn more details, stay tuned!
29 People have been injured, one seriously. There was a pressure cooker with wires and what looks like a taped cell phone found on 27th street and 7th Avenue The emergency service system sent texts to New Yorkers warning them to stay away from the area and their windows if they live in the area.
The FBI and NYPD have 5 men in custody at the Verrazano bridge in Brooklyn. The investigation is related to the explosions at Chelsea, but no one has been officially arrested or charged. Suspects are just being questioned.
