When asked whether the attack was connected to ISIS, authorities said “he did make statements.”
NYPD Police Commissioner James O’Neill has identified the New York City bomber as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah.
Ullah is believed to have been living in Brooklyn, and was from Bangladesh.
They say he has been living in New York for the last 7 years.
His explosive device was called “low-tech,” and it not only detonated early, but also malfunctioned.
It is also being reported that a second device was found on Ullah.
