A man identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, from Tampa, FL, drove a rental pickup truck down a bike bath and into a crowd in Lower Manhattan while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” The attack killed eight people and injured at least 11 others.

The police shot and took the Saipov, an Uzbekistan native, into custody. He is recovering at a hospital.

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has taken over the investigation.

Fox News described what happened:

Police said the truck entered the bike path on West Street a few blocks from the new World Trade Center — the site of the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history — and plowed into several people. The driver jumped out of his rental truck carrying what turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

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

Saipov came from Uzbekistan in 2010.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called it a terrorist attack while Governor Andrew Cuomo said it was a lone wolf attack. From Fox News:

Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking at a press conference Tuesday evening, called the incident “an act of terror.”

“This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians,” de Blasio said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo referred to the incident as a “lone wolf” attack, and added that at this point in the investigation, there is no evidence to suggest that there was a wider plot.
