Law enforcement officials early Monday pored through evidence, including a 20-second video, after a failed car bombing attempt in Times Square over the weekend.

The video released by authorities showed an image of a man, who police say is possibly connected to the attempted bombing, changing his shirt along a New York street. A balding man with dark hair is seen removing a shirt and putting it in a bag before walking out of the camera’s view from inside a restaurant.

Authorities plan to release another video in the case, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told CNN’s “American Morning” on Monday.

Kelly said the person in the video “is seen, we believe, running north on Broadway.” He said the video was obtained from a tourist.

The investigation was focusing on examinations of a Nissan Pathfinder where the attempted homemade bomb was placed. On Sunday, Kelly said the vehicle was being inspected for fingerprints, hair, fibers and other evidence that may help identify who was responsible.

Police were also combing through hours of surveillance footage in the area for possible clues.

Of the video already released, Kelly said it “shows a white male in his 40s, in Shubert Alley, looking back in the direction of West 45th Street” in a “furtive manner.”

“He also was seen shedding a dark-colored shirt, revealing a red one underneath. He put the darker one into a bag that he was carrying,” he added.

Kelly acknowledged that the actions of the man “could be perfectly innocent.”

Asked whether police had a video showing a man getting out of the Nissan, Kelly answered, “no.”
