The subway stations were evacuated, and Port Authority Bus Terminal was also shut down.

A peaceful beginning to the workweek was shattered Monday after an explosion rattled through one of the busiest transit hubs in New York City, causing the authorities to evacuate hundreds of commuters and throwing the morning into chaos.

The Police Department said that one person was in custody after the blast echoed through the passageway connecting the Times Square and Port Authority subway stations shortly before 7:30 a.m.

The suspect, identified by the police as Akayed Ullah, 27, an immigrant from Bangladesh who lived in Brooklyn, was in serious condition at Bellevue Hospital Center. The Fire Department said four injuries had been reported.

Surveillance cameras captured the moments before and after a suspect appeared to detonate a bomb in a New York City subway tunnel connecting Times Square and Port Authority stations.
