Hero Cops 'Lit Up' Terror Suspect In NYC

Hero Cops 'Lit Up' Terror Suspect In NYC”

The FBI and NYPD have launched a terror probe into the deadly incident in which a pickup truck driver fatally mowed down at least eight people in downtown Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, police sources sources said.

The first report of the incident came over the NYC police scanner radio at around 3.20pm. Witnesses said that the man shouted "Allahu Akbar" after getting off his truck.

The truck hit pedestrians and cyclists and then a school bus, injuring at least two adults.

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

The 29-year-old driver, possibly a Middle Eastern man with a beard, was shot by police and taken into custody.

Police said the suspect exited the vehicle with imitation firearms and was shot by police.

'Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog.

"A auto just ran over 2 people and then crashed into a school bus", one person at the scene tweeted.

Uber driver Chen Yi said he saw a truck plow into people on a popular bike path adjacent to the West Side Highway. "I see two dead bodies and citibikes on the floor destroyed", a Twitter user wrote.

Shocked passers-by thought the deranged truck driver was conducting a sick Halloween prank when he yelled "Allahu Akbar" and staggered out of his wrecked vehicle brandishing a paintball gun and a pellet gun in each hand. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around.

"From the New York Post: "'What happened was there was a vehicle crash... he came out of one of the cars. "I heard four to six gunshots - everybody starts running".
