Eight have been killed and more than a dozen injured according to a 5:20 PM press conference hosted by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"The truck driver who plowed into several people along the West Side bike path shouted “Allahu Akbar” after getting out of his vehicle, according to sources. He also displayed “imitation firearms” that panicked witnesses thought were real. Six people were killed on the bike path before the driver was shot by police. He is expected to survive," according to the New York Post.
The attack took place in lower Manhattan at about 3:00 PM today.
The terrorist Sayfullo Saipov, 29, had the notes written in Arabic inside his Home Depot rental truck along with a picture of the ISIS flag, according to law enforcement sources reports the NY Post on Tuesday night.
"The handwritten notes indicated that he had pledged allegiance to the terror group, the sources said." He lived in Florida for a period of time, married when he was 25 years old, and in the recent past drove for Uber in New Jersey.
