Driver shouted "Allahu Akbar"

Driver shouted

A 29 year old driving a rental truck crashed it into a school bus near the World Trade Center on a bicycle path in NY carrying firearms and shot several people, of whom 8 are dead and the rest injured. The suspect is in custody.

Witnesses said that the suspect was shouting Allahu Akbar following the incident.

The truck also slammed into a short yellow school bus, injuring two adults and two children.

Federal authorities were treating the episode as a terrorist attack and were taking the lead in the investigation, a senior law enforcement official said.

A man who was riding in an Uber along the West Side Highway near Chambers Street said he saw several bleeding people on the ground after a truck struck several people.

The 29-year-old is said to be from Uzbekistan and arrived in the United States in 2010.

Eight have been killed and more than a dozen injured according to a 5:20 PM press conference hosted by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. A auto just ran over 2 people and then crashed into a school bus.

The incident reportedly unfolded in the area of West Street and Chambers Street, just blocks away from the National September 11 Memorial, just after 3 p.m. ET. "When I ran up the bridge, I saw this dude with two guns". Four people were removed from the bus and they had minor injuries, the official said. He said he then heard seven to eight shots and then police pointing a gun at a man kneeling on the pavement. The box truck then collided with a Home Deport rental truck, and the box truck driver got out with what appeared to be a firearm. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around.
