FBI Questions Car’s Occupants In NYC Blast Probe

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say FBI agents pulled over a car on a highway in Brooklyn and are questioning the vehicle’s occupants in connection with the investigation of the bombing in Manhattan.

Stay with CBS New York for the latest updates. 

FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser says agents stopped “a vehicle of interest in the investigation” at 8:45 p.m. Sunday.

She wouldn’t provide further details, but a government official and a law enforcement official who were briefed on the investigation said five people in the car were being questioned at an FBI building in lower Manhattan.

The two officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about an ongoing investigation.

Langmesser said no one has been charged with any crime and the investigation is continuing.
