Captured NYC-area bombing suspect had been spotted sleeping in NJ bar doorway

The Afghan-born immigrant wanted in New York area bombings was spotted sleeping in a doorway of a New Jersey bar before he was nabbed in a gun battle with police.

Two officers sustained nonlife-threatening injuries and the 28-year-old suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, was wounded and taken to a hospital, authorities said.

Sources told NBC News that Rahami was seen on a video on 23rd and 27th streets in the Chelsea section of Manhattan on Saturday night. A bomb exploded on 23rd Street, injuring 29 people, and police found an undetonated device on 27th Street.

Suspect Ahmad Rahami shot in Linden, NJ and in police custody is treated for gunshot wounds on Sept. 19, 2016.
