During the attack, Saipov jumped out with two fake guns, one paintball gun and another pellet gun, and was shot by police officers, according to the New York Times.

He said the 29-year-old man entered the bike path and drove south, hitting pedestrians and cyclists.

Video from the scene shows multiple people injured on what looks like a bike path adjacent to the NYC's Westside Highway.

He careered down a popular cycle path a few streets from the World Trade Centre memorial injuring at least 11 people.
