Police responded Monday morning to a terrorist attack on a subway platform near Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan. 

The suspected bomber is a 27-year-old ISIS-inspired Bangladeshi national who lived in Brooklyn, The New York Post reported. Ullah Akayed was injured and taken into custody, according to the NYPD. 

Three others were hurt, but none of the injuries are considered life-threatening, the FDNY said.

The explosion caused chaos and a massive police response at the height of the Monday morning rush hour near Times Square.

The blast was visible on a CCTV feed of the subway platform packed with commuters.

Former NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton described the attack as "ISIS-inspired." The attacker reportedly had the device strapped to his body and intentionally detonated it.

Subway lines bypassed the terminal as police responded to the area and evacuated the terminal.

Port Authority is the largest bus terminal in the U.S. and about 232,000 commuters go through the area daily. The number of passengers is expected to jump to 337,000 daily by 2040.

On "Fox & Friends," counterterrorism expert Sebastian Gorka said the terminal is a "classic" potential target for terror due to the large concentrations of commuters.
