NEW YORK (CNN) -- Two officers were hit in the shootout with Ahmad Khan Rahami in Linden, New Jersey, the mayor of the nearby city of Elizabeth said. One officer's vest was struck, and the other was shot in the hand.
Rahami, the man suspected in New York and New Jersey is now in custody. He was taken to an ambulance in a stretcher with his right shoulder bloodied and bandaged.
Rahami is also believed to be connected to the pipe bombs found in a backpack Sunday night in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Before his arrest, he was added to key terror watch lists to prevent him from trying to leave the country.
New York police identified Rahami this morning as wanted in connection with the bombing Saturday night in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, which wounded 29 people.
Earlier Saturday, a garbage can exploded near the starting line of a Marine Corps charity run in Seaside Park, New Jersey.
And on Sunday night, a backpack with multiple bombs inside was found in Elizabeth, New Jersey. As authorities tried to investigate, one of those bombs exploded.
The series of attacks come as New York hosts world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly this week.
