Suspect is shot and captured in New York-area bombings - AP
AP reports: "A New Jersey police officer responding to a call about a hoodied
vagrant curled up asleep in a bar doorway roused him and quickly
recognized the bearded face of perhaps the most wanted man in America.
Ahmad Khan Rahami — identified in an FBI bulletin just hours earlier as a
man wanted in the weekend bombings in New York City and New Jersey —

authorities said. "
