Explosion in New York City believed to be ‘intentional,’ mayor says; 29 injured

DEVELOPING: An explosion that injured at least 29 people in New York City late Saturday appeared to be “intentional,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced, as officers uncovered what they called a possible secondary explosive device four blocks away.

The blast appeared to originate from a construction toolbox in front of a building, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. A garbage can was found mangled nearby. Sources told Fox News it did not appear to be a gas explosion. (FOX)

Bombs in New York and New Jersey reported thus far.


Explosion in Virginia reported as unrelated.

Attack in New Jersey was earlier in the day.


The FBI has taken over the investigation following a similar blast that rocked Seaside Park, New Jersey early Saturday:

The reports of a possible blast come hours after a pipe bomb exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey, shortly before thousands of runners participated in a charity 5K race to benefit Marines and sailors. No injuries were reported.

“We felt it, we heard it, the restaurant went real quiet, the 26-year-old Gonzalez said. “It wasn’t like jolting or anything, everyone just went quiet.”

Witnesses say FBI and Homeland Security officials, along with the ATF arson and explosive task force are also at the scene.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the FBI’s joint terrorism task force was responding and that investigators did not believe the incident was due to a gas leak. The official was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation and requested anonymity.

Brad Cohen, the acting special agent in charge of the FBI’s office in Newark, declined to discuss the matter at length during a brief news conference staged Saturday evening.

He said the FBI is working side by side with federal, state and local officials to find out who is behind the device.
