NEW YORK - The man accused of setting off a bomb in Chelsea in 2016 has been found guilty on all counts.
Ahmad Rahimi now faces a mandatory sentence of life behind bars.
Jurors returned the verdict late Monday morning.
Thirty people were injured in September 2016 when police say a bomb planted by Rahimi went off on 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues.
Rahimi left another one that didn't explode four blocks north, and a third in New Jersey, which did not hurt anyone.
Rahimi was arrested days later after a shootout with police in New Jersey.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
In a statement, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York said, in part, "Today’s verdict is a victory for New York City, a victory for America in its fight against terror, and a victory for all who believe in the cause of justice."
Mayor Bill de Blasio added, in part, "New York City will never be intimidated. We remain vigilant, resolute and safe. Congratulations to all those involved in this important prosecution."
A sentencing date has been set for January 18, 2018.
