Police have said the objects Saipov was holding were imitation firearms. New Yorkers: "live your life and don't let them change your lives in any shape or form".

Of the eight people killed, six were pronounced dead at the scene and two more were pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, according to New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill.

Officials said they believe Saipov acted alone and they do not believe the attack was part of a bigger plot.

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.

The FBI announced it is investigating the incident as a terrorist incident. Law enforcement sources tell us NYPD has one person in custody following the incident. The department says it's unclear whether anyone was shot.

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.
