BREAKING: New York Attacked Near World Trade Center - 8 Dead - 12 Injured


A person in a truck reportedly ran over some pedestrians and bicyclists, and then opened gunfire.

The NYPD said the vehicle continued driving south on the path until it struck another vehicle. Then, the suspect left the vehicle "displaying imitation firearms" and was shot by police officers before being taken into custody.

The suspect allegedly struck more than a dozen people while driving through the bike path for at least 10 blocks, according to NBC News. Police said that the suspect deliberately hit a school bus and witnesses said that they heard the driver yell "Allah akbar" before exiting the vehicle.
