The explosion happened around 7:45 a.m. in a New York Subway pedestrian tunnel below 8th Avenue, near the Port Authority bus terminal. The suspect was found with wires attached to his body, according to multiple reports.

Surveillance video shows white smoke filling the passageway with commuters using clothing to clover their mouths to breathe.

Multiple news agencies are calling the explosive device a pipe bomb that the suspected bomber might have prematurely detonated. The New York Post described the device as a "5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection."
