4:04 am
>> reporter: piece by piece, investigators are analyzing every particle of debris left, including looking closely at this dumpster. twisted and mangled in the aftermath of the explosion. >> it was louder than thunder. but i could feel like -- it was just a large boom. where the building kind of shook. >> i got some type of explosion inside of a garbage can. >> reporter: meanwhile, federal authorities looking into whether a pipe bomb which exploded in this trash can 60 miles away in new jersey is related to the bombings in new york city. >> the pressure cookers. that they were certainly similar in construct. >> reporter: the explosions and a stabbing rampage over the weekend in a minnesota mall which investigators are calling a potential act of terrorism sparking renewed fears across the country. and in light of those new fears, we understand that law enforcement officials here in new york city are urging everyone to be vigilant and to report anything suspicious here

>> and ray, so many ens dents on so many scenes right now. let's get back to the story we were talking about. what's happening in elizabeth, new jersey. what are you learning from your post? >> reporter: yeah, kendis. what we can tell you, and what we have learned from law enforcement officials is that one of the five devices found in that backpack -- bomb squad experts were trying to disarm one of them, to cut wires, that's when it exploded. we understand that this explosion was not controlled. but thankfully, no one was hurt and no one was around the area at the time of this explosion. we do know that law enforcement agents are trying to go through surveillance video to see who exactly placed that device there in elizabeth, new jersey. we understand shrapnel and other evidence from that explosion are now being sent to fbi headquarters in quantico in hopes of piecing together this investigation. diane and kendis, back to you. >> we hear so often see something, say something. sounds like in that case, that may have saved lives. so far, none of the cases
4:06 am
looking at important clues. >> former fbi special agent in charge and abc news contributor steve gomez takes a look at who might be responsible. >> the profile is definitely somebody who was willing to plan and to basically develop these types of bombs. the more we're learning about the devices, the more it seems there's some sophistication. it would require some kind of research, some planning. and there's information online. and quad and isis have put a lot of that on the internet to where people here in the u.s. could research and try to develop the devices themselves. in this case, we saw, new york city, one that went off. one that did not. so that's typical of the kinds of people that are just trying to do it themselves. so they're probably people that are trying to do it on their own, using the internet to research and then develop. >> our thanks to steve gomez there. the presidential candidates are reacting to the explosions
4:07 am
>> donald trump tweeted overnight that he'll make america safe again. he's blaming the policies of president obama and hillary clinton for not protecting the the country after the blasts went off in new york. trump immediately called that a bomb. clinton said she wanted to wait for the fact. she later condemned the incidents as apparent terrorist attacks. a stabbing in a minnesota mall is being looked at as a potential act of terror as well. saturday's attack in st. cloud left nine people wounded. all are expected to be okay. isis is claiming the attacker was a quote soldier of the islamic state. the suspect has not been officially identified. reports describe him as a 22-year-old former college student born in somalia. central minnesota's somali community has condemned the attack. in other news, the crisis in syria is at the top of the agenda later today when the u.n. general assembly meets here in new york.
