Rahimi was already serving a life term following his conviction on several terror charges for planting homemade bombs in various locations in New York and New Jersey.

Thirty people were injured on Sept. 17, 2016, when a pressure-cooker bomb filled with ball bearings and steel nuts detonated on Sixth Ave. and W. 23rd St., crumpling a dumpster while shrapnel flew through the air and shattered windows as far as 400 feet away.

Rahimi, 31, was captured two days later after a wild shootout with police in Linden, N.J., not far from his Elizabeth home.

“The defendant’s actions were shocking and carried out with a callous disregard for the value of human life,” said Superior Court Judge John Deitch before he handed down Rahimi’s sentence. “His actions were completely abhorrent to civilized society.”

Officer Angel Padilla was the first of five officers to encounter the suspect after police responded to a call and found Rahimi sleeping in a Linden doorway.

“I never thought I would confront the person they had been looking for,” Padilla said after the sentencing. ” I knew that I would have to take my time asking him questions and waiting for my backup to show up, but never in a million years did I think it would end the way it did.”

Rahimi shot Padilla, who was saved by his protective vest. He has since retired as a result of the shooting.

Another officer was struck in the head by a bullet fragment that pierced his windshield. Rahimi was shot seven times.

In October, a New Jersey jury convicted Rahimi on charges that included attempted murder, aggravated assault and several weapons charges.

Rahimi had been convicted earlier in New York of planting two bombs in Manhattan, including an explosive device that failed to detonate.

Hours earlier, Rahimi had planted a pipe bomb along the route of a Marine Corps charity road race in Seaside Park, N.J. The bomb exploded harmlessly.

Officials found additional explosives in a backpack near a New Jersey transit station in Elizabeth.

At Rahimi's previous sentencing in New York, prosecutors also had criticized him for not showing remorse and for seeking to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in New York where he had been imprisoned since his arrest.

Rahimi declined to make a statement during the sentencing.
