NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police have spoken to the registered owner of the vehicle used as a homemade car bomb in the heart of Times Square but say he is not considered a suspect.
Chief NYPD spokesman Paul Browne would not give further details Monday.
The dark-colored Pathfinder didn't have a clearly visible vehicle identification number. Its license plates came from a car found in a Connecticut repair shop.
Police say the crude gasoline-and-propane bomb could have sprayed shrapnel and metal parts with enough force to kill pedestrians and knock out windows.
