Authorities called the explosion in the terminal at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue an "attempted terrorist attack" and police identified the suspect as Akayed Ullah, 27.

The New York Police Department says it is responding to a report of an explosion near Times Square.

The A, C and E subway lines are being evacuated, the NYPD said.

Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller said that the device was attached to a pipe bomb that had been fastened to Ullah's body with Velcro and zip ties.

There have been reports that the bomb may have gone off prematurely. The 7:30 a.m. blast filled the passageway, crowded with throngs of Monday morning commuters, with smoke. Commuters rushed to flee as emergency personnel worked to clear people out of the bus terminal. The person in custody appears to be injured, according to the federal law enforcement source.
