The FBI Tuesday probed what could have motivated an Afghan-born American to allegedly bomb New York's Chelsea neighborhood, scrutinizing his extensive travel to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and work at the family restaurant.Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, was shot multiple times and captured during a shootout with police on Monday after being spotted in the doorway of a bar in Linden, New Jersey just four hours after the FBI released his name and mugshot.Investigators suspect that Rahami built 10 bombs, only two of which exploded – the one in Chelsea, which wounded 29 people, and a pipe bomb that forced the cancellation of a U.S. Marine Corps run on the Jersey Shore on Saturday.Two other pipe bombs in the New Jersey town of Seaside Park failed to detonate, as did a pressure cooker device in Chelsea, and five pipe bombs in a backpack at a trash can in his hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, which were defused safely on Monday.While Rahami reportedly spent three months in custody, the court official confirmed that the case was subsequently dropped.
