Explosion in New York City believed to be 'intentional,' mayor says; 29 injured
Published September 17, 2016

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.

The FBI and New York Police Department have not ruled out terrorism as a possible factor but say it's too early to determine the exact cause, law enforcement sources told Fox News. Police did not say whether they had any potential suspects.

The blast was heard on West 23rd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in the city's Chelsea neighborhood. Police counterterrorism officers, a bomb squad and firefighters rushed to the scene.

Investigators said 24 people were hospitalized, with one of them hurt "seriously" by a puncture wound.
