Prayers up for New York City. According to published reports there was a pipe bombing in the Times Square area of Manhattan early this morning.

“At least one person is injured and one person is in custody after a suspected pipe bombing in Manhattan, according to police. Multiple subway lines have been evacuated, and trains are bypassing Times Square and Port Authority,” WPIX, a local New York station, reported. The NYPD’s twitter account revealed the explosion was between subway lines.

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s Morning Joe the suspect, who is in custody, is from Bangladesh, a male in his mid twenties and “the act was being committed in the name of ISIS.” The suspect reportedly had a pipe bomb. As of now, the attack appears to be a lone-wolf. Here is a video of the explosion:
