Manhunt for Bombing Suspect Ends in New Jersey Shootout

Ahmad Rahami, wanted in connection with blasts in New York and New Jersey, was taken into custody after a gun battle with police.

Law enforcement officers secure the area where they arrested Ahmad Khan Rahami following a shootout in Linden, New Jersey, on Sept. 19.

The search for Rahami ended after police got a call about a man sleeping in the doorway of a local bar.
