What’s being reported as an “explosive device” went off in the consistently-crowded underground passenger walkway between Times Square and Port Authority Station shortly before 7:30 a.m. this morning. According to the NYPD, four people have suffered minor injuries, including the suspect himself, a 27 year old man who has an address in Brooklyn and is originally from Bangladesh.

NYPD commissioner James O’Neill is calling the incident a “terror-related attack.”

GMA delivered a special report on incident at 7:55 a.m. ET George Stephanopoulos anchored, while correspondent Gio Benitez reported from the scene.

Today Show anchor Savannah Guthrie delivered an NBC News special report on the explosion at 7:55 a.m. ET as well. NBC News investigative reporter Tom Winter joined the broadcast via phone.

CBS This Morning’s Gayle King reported the news at the top of the hour (8 a.m. ET), and Norah O’Donnell delivered an official CBS News special report at 8:02 a.m. CBS News correspondent DeMarco Morgan joined the broadcast via phone.
