Bloodbath in downtown NYC after driver runs over pedestrians, starts shooting

Bloodbath in downtown NYC after driver runs over pedestrians, starts shooting

Up to six people were killed near Stuyvesant High School in lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon in a wild incident that involved a truck ramming into victims on the West Side bike path, police sources said.

The mayhem happened at West Street and Chambers Street at 3:15 p.m. The suspect was shot and is in police custody, cops said.

Witnesses described a scene of terror, saying a man in a truck ran over two people before plowing into a school bus.

“Jesus! A car just ran over 2 people and then crashed into a school bus. I see two dead bodies and citibikes on the floor destroyed,” a Twitter user wrote.

The suspect then got out of his vehicle with two guns, another witness said.

“What happened was there was a car crash … he came out of one of the cars. He had two guns,” a 14-year-old Stuyvesant High School student said. “We thought it was a Halloween thing. He started running around the highway. There was another guy in a green shirt that was chasing him around.”

“I heard four to six gunshots – everybody starts running,” she added.

Video of the scene shows at least two people lying limp on the street. Photos show a smashed-up Home Depot rental truck and two mangled Citi Bikes.

Counter-terror police were searching the truck for explosives.
“Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F—k,” Josh Groban tweeted.

Police shut down the FDR Drive south of 34th Street to rush victims to Bellevue Hospital.

I’m reading now that it’s a terror attack. This is about a block or two from the World Trade Center/ Freedom Tower, 911 Memorial and fountain. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

Six people killed after gunman driving Home Depot truck rips through bike lane, yells 'Allahu Akbar!'

Eight dead after terrorist in Home Depot truck runs down bikers - NY Daily News

Read somewhere that they shot him in the ass before they caught him. I can think of better places to have shot him (to eliminate court costs and upkeep) but the ass shot is kinda funny!

Just watched news , police shot him in the leg then took him to the hospital. They should have shot himin the head and left him there to rot. But then again it's nyc the safest place around.

Well we certainly need stricter truck laws and more in depth background checks before allowing people to drive motor vehicles. I think it would also be wise to make motorized vehicles above 70 hp and weighing more than 1800 lbs. illegal. Perhaps larger cities should start confiscating trucks and SUVs.

I live in Ny, after work (about 1 ½ hours before this happened) I see a guy dressed up in like that fake leaves camp and has a few fake guns on him (orange tipped) getting into his car. They reported that the guy had fake guns on him and I thought oh crap maybe the same guy, but I finally got to see a picture of him, not him.

JMHO, but if anyone wants to bring chaos to anyplace at anytime they will do it regardless what the mode of transportation is.

Timothy McVeigh used a rented moving truck to bring down a building in Oklahoma City. The 911 hijackers used box cutters and at least 3 people die each year in the US by a vending machine that fell on them.

For the sake of political correctness let me guess, since this guy had a toy gun and was shot the media is going to insist that the LEO that shot him be sentenced to life in prison and the perpetrator be awarded millions of dollars and forgiven for the people he killed.
