One man is in police custody after a pipe bomb he wore exploded on the 42nd Street New York City subway platform near Times Square early Monday, the Associated Press reported.

The 27-year-old man and three other people sustained injuries after the explosion occurred at about 7:30 a.m. ET. His injuries are not reported to be life-threatening.

New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill described the incident as “terror-related,” according to the Associated Press.

The A, C and E subway lines have been evacuated, along with the Port Authority bus station during the busy early morning commute.
