Suspect Lone Wolf Attack In NYC 8 Dead 15 Injuried

AT LEAST 8 DEAD IN ATTACK IN LOWER MANHATTAN

9aace6cc71034166f3c5e73f57dea648.gif

 

CBS Live Feed

 

NEW YORK -- Police and witnesses say a motorist drove onto a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center memorial in Manhattan and struck several people, then emerged from the vehicle screaming and brandishing imitation firearms.

 

Eight people were killed in what Mayor Bill de Blasio called an act of terror. The NYPD tweeted that the driver exited the car displaying the imitation firearms and was shot by police officers.

 

De Blasio said eight were dead and nearly a dozen were injured in what he described as a terror attack. He called it "a very painful day in our city" and said the rampage was a "cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians."

"Today there was a loss of innocent life in lower Manhattan," NYPD commissioner James O'Neill said at a Tuesday press conference.

 

Both O'Neill and de Blasio praised the work of an officer who they said stopped the assailant.

 

New York governor Andrew Cuomo said the attack appeared to be a "lone wolf" incident with no apparent link to a wider terrorist group or plot.

 

The incident occurred at West Street and Chambers Street around 3:10 p.m, CBS New York reported. The NYPD said on its Twitter account just before 3:30 p.m. that one person is in custody. The department isn't looking for any other suspects, the station reported.
The NYPD said on Twitter there were "several fatalities and numerous people injured." The department said it was unclear whether anyone was shot or whether the injured were all struck by the vehicle, which entered the pedestrian/bike path a few blocks north of Chambers St.
The truck drove down the bike path for about four blocks before veering back into traffic lanes and striking a school bus and another vehicle.
Four people on board the school bus were injured, CBS New York reports. Officials said Tuesday they were two adults and two children.
The suspect, a 29-year-old male, then emerged brandishing the imitation firearms. An officer shot him in the abdomen and he was transported to the hospital. A pellet gun and a paintball gun were recovered at the scene, O'Neill said.
"A vehicle drove straight down a bicycle path heading south in Manhattan just mowing everything down," witness Greg Ahl told 1010 WINS. "It looks like a vehicle drove down the bicycle path and ran everything over."
Home Depot confirmed that the vehicle involved is a Home Depot rental truck, but the company couldn't confirm it was the suspect's rental vehicle. The company said its cooperating with police.
An Associated Press photographer on the scene Tuesday witnessed at least two bodies lying motionless on the path beneath tarps.
Video from the scene showed several mangled bicycles along the bike path.
"I noticed along the bike path a bunch of wrecked bicycles and as I drove it was just more and more completely and totally wrecked bicycles and people mulling around to the side. I must've seen 30 or 40 bicycles like that," Ahl said.
A man who was riding in an Uber along the West Side Highway near Chambers street says he saw several bleeding people on the ground.
A large number of police vehicles could be seen near West Street and Chambers Street, which is near a community college, a high school and a few blocks north of the National Sept. 11 Memorial.
Residents were cautioned to avoid the area and to expect many emergency personnel in the area. Nearby Stuyvesant High School was on lockdown as a precaution, the station reports.
The White House says President Donald Trump has been briefed on the incident.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the president and New York native has been briefed by White House chief of staff John Kelly and "will be continually updated as more details are known."
Sanders says, "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected."
At first when i got the alert on my phone it was reported as a truck driver had run over two cyclist and I assumed it was a road rage incident as cyclist and drivers in NYC often get into arugement as we've all seen the videos on youtube and the news

I'm glad they caught them alive. I want them to be forced to explain themselves and why they felt what they did was right. Just one time I want one of these pathetic, mewling primadonnas to actually be shown to be demonstrably wrong and risible. Frankly I'm sick of them all getting an easy out, and never having to live with what they've done and the wrong choices they've made.

The suspect is Sayfullo Saipov.

The suspect was screaming, “Allahu Akbar!” during the attack.
Sayfullo Saipov
The photo CBS released of him showed a full Muslim-style beard.
Uzbekistan
Islam is by far the dominant religion in Uzbekistan, as Muslims constitute 79% of the population while 5% of the population follow Russian Orthodox Christianity, 16% other religious and non-religious.[1][2] An estimated 93,000 Jews were once present
Rip those who's lives where lost and may the families not fall apart after such loss.

The world is doing better than it ever was, you're just able to have instant access to all the bad things that are happening.

tbh everyone one of these incidents- and most violent crime generally- is committed by men. This is barely acknowledged, but you seem mad they even mention that the suspect is male? Generally their only prior conviction is for domestic violence, this as well is never talked about, apparently its far more relevant what music they were into or whatever.

I didn't really ask you to validate my opinion. Terribly sorry that you have to come across such posts in topics like these but as a staffer, I don't think it should really come to you as a surprise. Also, I assume that you're old enough to understand that it was more of an outburst than a claim. Maybe next time you can try to look at it this way so I don't ruin your day.

I think you grossly misunderstood my post, it was a positive post on the current state of things and a generic "isn't it funny" with the general "we're all doomed" feeling that floats around topics like these...was mostly impersonal.

In another one of my opinions, I think there were better ways to put that positive & Impersonal point across, rather than doing so at the expensive of making it seem personal, which I naturally took it as, seeing how it's structured. With that being said, I don't think I had any "generic" intentions of making people aware of an impending doom. It was just a natural reaction to something that personally affects me, seeing as this incident, like many others was not a small deal, whether or not we had instant access to it's occurrence, as I'm sure even you would agree with.

 

In any case, our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims & wish those injured, a speedy recovery, Cheers.

Oh wow, look. People finding any excuse to argue in a thread dedicated to a sudden loss of life.

 

I hope those involved can get past this, and their families can cope.

I am still very surprised not more people were injured/killed given how busy and packed it is there.

Some people need to realize before posting, that finding excuses to pass underhanded comments just to gain a like or two, does not contribute much to such a situation either.

 

 

 

Thoughts & Prayers with those affected.

This is what the radicalization is doing. Isn't there a way to control, or stop the use of internet by these terrorist outfits from getting people's minds brainwashed?

Sure. Funding our own brain-washing that's more commonly known as education. If we spent a fraction of what we spend on ineffective wars abroad on public's access to education, we'd see a lot fewer instances of terrorism. Probably fewer mass-shootings as well.

They showed on my local dinner news tonight, 57 concrete block barriers being placed on the bike trail and sidewalks where the attack happened.

 

The New York times has a article and pictures of the new barriers.
