At least eight dead in ‘act of terror’ in NYC
A man in a rented pickup truck mowed down pedestrians and bicyclists along a busy bike path near the World Trade Center memorial Tuesday, killing at least eight and injuring 11 others in what the mayor called ‘‘a particularly cowardly act of terror.’’
The 29-year-old driver, identified by two law enforcement officials as Sayfullo Saipov, was shot in the abdomen by police and taken into custody after jumping out of the truck with what turned out to be a fake gun in each hand and shouting ‘‘Allahu Akbar!’’ officials said. His condition was not immediately released.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called it a ‘‘lone wolf’’ attack and said there was no evidence to suggest it was part of a wider plot.
Police said the vehicle, a rented Home Depot truck, entered the bike path at about 3 p.m. on West Street a few blocks from the new World Trade Center — the site of the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history — and mowed down several people. The truck then turned at Chambers Street near the trade center site, striking a small yellow school bus and injuring two adults and two children.
In addition to those killed, 11 people were seriously injured, police said.
