6 dead after motorist drives onto NY bike path

6 dead after motorist drives onto NY bike path”

Saipov came to the United States in 2010 and now lives in Paterson, New Jersey.

"I haven't seen them since [the incident]", Carlos Batista told the newspaper.

The attack closed roads across the western edge of Manhattan along the Hudson River and sent uniformed officers rushing to the neighborhood as people prepared for Halloween festivities, including an annual parade through Greenwich Village. He said authorities would not release his identity immediately.

The FBI and NY police urged members of the public to come forward with any information that could assist the investigation, which the mayor said preliminary information suggested was a lone wolf assault.

Law enforcement sources identified the perpetrator as Sayfullo Saipov (29).

"We are referring all questions about the investigation to the FBI and the New York Police Department", the statement said. "He did make a statement when he exited the vehicle", though he declined to elaborate.

A police official said the attack was being investigated as a possible act of terrorism.

Meanwhile, President Trump called the terror attack was carried out "by a very sick and deranged person".

Cities around the globe have been on alert against attacks by extremists in vehicles. The Islamic State group has been exhorting its followers to mow down people, and England, France and Germany have seen deadly vehicle attacks in the past year or so.

A pickup driver killed eight people in NY on Tuesday, mowing down cyclists and pedestrians, before striking a school bus in what officials branded a "cowardly act of terror".

Witnesses described a chaotic scene of a white pickup truck hitting bicyclists on a path near the World Trade Center and then slamming into a school bus.

The incident marked the greatest loss of life from a suspected terrorist attack in NY since suicide hijackers crashed jetliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan on September 11 in 2001, killing more than 2600 people. The police found a shotgun and another paintball gun in the place.

"According to the information we have at this moment, it was an act of terror", said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio at a press conference. Video footage taken by a bystander that circulated online showed crumpled bicycles scattered long the path, and at least two people lying on the ground. "He has a gun". He said a heavyset man was chasing him. The New York Times said investigators quickly recognized that Saipov had come to the attention of law enforcement in the past.

Police were unable to confirm if there were any injuries, but local media reported at least five, including possible fatalities.

"People were screaming. Females were screaming at the top of their lungs". After colliding with the school bus, the man exited holding two firearms.

The White House said that Mr Trump had been briefed on the attack.

"My thoughts, condolences and prayers to the victims and families of the New York City terrorist attack. And over a dozen more injured".

On July 14, 2016, a suspect drove a large truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice, killing 86 people and injuring hundreds more in an attack for which Islamic State claimed responsibility. Enrollment this year is 3,375 students in grades 9 through 12.
