At least 29 people are injured as an explosion rips through one of the most fashionable neighborhoods of New York.

New York Authorities said on Sunday that they have found and removed an explosive device — reportedly a pressure cooker — near the site of a Saturday night blast that injured more than two dozen people in the Chelsea neighborhood.

At a news conference before the discovery of a second device, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion injured at least 29 people but that there was no specific terrorist threat.

USA Today reports that a device believed to be a pressure cooker was subsequently found on West 27th Street, four blocks from the initial blast on West 23rd, according to New York Police Department.

The NYPD tweeted at about 2:24 a.m. ET Sunday that, “The suspicious device on West 27 Street in Chelsea has been safely removed by the NYPD Bomb Squad.”
