New York – New York City police say they have surveillance video of the Times Square car bomb suspect walking down an alley moments after witnesses saw a smoking SUV parked there.
A law enforcement official says the 30-year-old Faisal Shahzad (FY’-sul shah-ZAHD’) walks away wearing a white baseball cap moments after the Nissan Pathfinder is ditched in a no-standing zone across from a Broadway theater.
The official spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
The SUV was rigged with a homemade gasoline-and-propane bomb that didn’t go off on Saturday night. It still cleared the streets of thousands of tourists and shut down Times Square for several hours.
Shahzad was arrested Monday night at Kennedy Airport and faces terrorism and weapons charges.
