September 19, 2016 two bombs went off in the upper East Coast. Bombings in New York City and Seaside Park, New Jersey are suspected to be in connection to pipe bombs found in Elizabeth, NJ. Ahmad Khan Rahami was arrested as a suspect for these bombings. An article by a journalist in CNN News states that a law enforcement official said that Rahami was identified through his fingerprint. There is also surveillance camera footage proving that Rahami’s last known location was in Elizabeth.  Although he was arrested, authorities still have yet to go into detail with the public about their beliefs on his connection to the bombings. We know that they brought him to question him, but nothing more.
