From truck driver to Uber driver to Manhattan terror attack suspect

According to police, the suspect drove a rented Home Depot truck onto a bike path near the World Trade Center memorial, striking several people.

Eight people have been confirmed killed and several injured in a vehicle attack in NY which has been described as an "act of terror" by the city's mayor. He underwent surgery and was in critical condition but was expected to survive.

He smashed into a school bus, jumped out of his truck and ran up and down the highway waving a pellet gun and paintball gun and shouting "Allahu akbar", Arabic for "God is great", before he was shot in the abdomen by the officer.

Investigators are headed to Uzbekistan to speak with authorities there about NY truck attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov, a Federal official tells PEOPLE.

Records show Saipov was a commercial truck driver who formed a pair of businesses in OH after moving to the U.S. The first business, Sayf Motors Inc., used the address of a family friend near Cincinnati with whom Saipov had stayed for a couple of weeks after his arrival in the country.

Of the eight people killed in the attack the majority are foreign nationals, with five belonging to the same group from the Argentine city of Rosario. Neighbors said he did recently live in Paterson, not far from NY, at least part time.

On Tuesday night, law enforcement officials converged on an address in Paterson, New Jersey, believed to be Saipov's home. "There may be more injuries and we will determine that later", New York City Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. Gunshots rang out. He saw police officers ducking for cover.

A family friend described the suspect as calm and hard-working, while US President Donald Trump derided him as "sick and deranged". He described the crashed vehicle as a white pick-up truck with a Home Depot logo.

"We heard the screaming", she said. I know what gunshots sound like.

"What I saw was that the driver - he didn't look like he was bleeding", said Cruz. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around. Argentine newspaper La Nacion reported five of the eight people killed were Argentines traveling in the US on a celebratory vacation.

The suspect then got out of his vehicle with two guns, another witness said.

"I heard a truck, a auto, something going down the bike path", said chef Eugene Duff, 44, who was waiting at a red light to walk across West St. "All I heard was the impact of a crash".
