Trains are disrupted after police responded to a suspicious device at a train station in Elizabeth. After a man found a suspicious device he thought was a bomb, he alerted Elizabeth police who responded, and thought it could be a bomb. The device is currently secured, and is being investigated.
Police called in the Union County bomb squad who sent in a drone to examine even further; the drone indicated it could be a live bomb.
FBI is currently on-site, and a decision will be made on how to remove it.

A bomb squad was trying to disarm it when it exploded.
It was a bomb.
Ahmad Rahami, 28, was captured on Monday in a gunfight with police in the city of Linden, New Jersey, after an intense manhunt. Two officers were shot and wounded when they responded to a tip from the owner of a bar that a man resembling Rahami – whose photo was widely circulated on television news channels – was hiding in the doorway.
Rahami, whose nickname was "Mad" - an abbreviation of his first name - was carried by stretcher into an ambulance, taken conscious to hospital and was undergoing surgery last night having been shot in the leg and shoulder.
On Monday night he was charged with five counts of attempting to murder police officers during his dramatic arrest.
Rahami had travelled several times to both Afghanistan and Pakistan, people who knew him said on Monday night, and on his return appeared to have been radicalised.
The family of the Muslim bombing suspect who was arrested following a shootout with police in New Jersey Monday sued their city and local police force in 2011, charging they were harassed over their faith. Ahmad Rahami and his family, which had owned First American Fried Chicken, in Elizabeth, N.J., since 2002, claimed in a federal lawsuit that local cops subjected them to discrimination and 'selective enforcement' based on their religion.
They claimed police tried to shut down their restaurant before 10 p.m. with a barrage of summonses and visits. "Despite their legal right to keep the restaurant open past 10 p.m., defendants, each and every one of them, with reckless disregard and deliberate indifference to plainiffs' constitutional rights of liberty, due process and equal protection embarked on a course of conduct to harass, humiliate, intimidate, retaliate against and force plaintiffs to close their business by 10 p.m. by filing complaints, tickets, summonses ...," read one line from the complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
