Explosion injures 29 in New York, second device found nearby

A second explosive device was removed early Sunday near the area of Saturday night’s explosion that injured 29 people in New York City.

In a press conference, streamed live on the New York Police Department Facebook page, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the blast in Chelsea neighborhood was intentional, but there was no evidence of international terrorism.

According to USA TODAY, a device believed to be a pressure cooker was later found four blocks from the site of the initial explosion. The NYPD safely removed the device as agencies stayed on full alert.

As reported by the official press release, the cause of the explosion has not been determined, but there was no sign that it was caused by a natural gas explosion.

“The investigation is active and at this time an extensive search is being conducted,” New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill said.  “The area around the explosion site is being treated as a crime scene.”
