NYC 'Allahu Akbar' Truck Terrorist Named Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov

NYC 'Allahu Akbar' Truck Terrorist Named Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov

They just updated the story to include this: "The box truck driver headed the wrong way down a bicycle path, mowing down several people, sources say".

Complete mayhem broke out Tuesday afternoon in lower Manhattan, as a truck driver deliberately mowed down people while targeting a school bus in what New York Police is now officially investigating as a "terrorist attack".

"He jumped out of the truck with a pellet gun, yelled, 'Allahu Akbar, ' and the First Precinct lit him up", a law enforcement official said, referring to a police officer who had been on post nearby and who the authorities credited with saving lives.

One frantic witness told a station: "I saw the auto crash so I ran up the bridge". "I was walking down the street".

"I feel sorry for that people died there. It was just completely unexpected". A passer-by approached the attacker, apparently trying to calm him, Sirus said, until the man realized the attacker had a gun. So, the said nuisance is it really the terror attacks or the unchecked, rampant-running gun violence.... seems like a tough guess? The man "put his hands up and was backing away", Sirus said.

A USA counterterrorism official told NBC News that the intelligence community is unaware of any claims of responsibility for the attack at this time.

Despite the fact that investigators have yet to discover a direct link between Saipov and IS, the incident is now being investigated as a terrorist attack.

25-year-old Emanuel Samson injured 7 and killed one person after he opened fire at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Nashville. Hope all are safe. No others outstanding. All information is preliminary as the investigation is ongoing.
