Eight Dead After Truck Driver Runs Down Pedestrians in NYC, Witnesses Say He Shouted “Allahu Akbar!”

Radical Islamic terrorism appears to have struck again in the heart of New York City, this time in the form of the increasingly common vehicle attack that has been seen so much in Europe recently.
According to WNBC, at least eight people are dead and another 15 injured — those numbers will likely rise — after a driver steered a large Home Depot rental truck onto a crowded bike path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon.

The attacker reportedly ran over at least a dozen people and slammed into a school bus at one point as he drove roughly 10 blocks down the bike path.
When the truck finally came to a stop, the attacker reportedly exited the vehicle with what appeared to be handguns — though they may have been BB or paintball guns — and shouted the jihadist battle-cry, “Allahu Akbar,” before he himself was gunned down by police.
However, the driver did not immediately die from the gunshots and was reportedly taken into custody.

No terrorist group had claimed responsibility for the attack by Tuesday evening, according to NBC.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo were reportedly headed to the scene of the attack, and President Donald Trump has been briefed on the incident and is monitoring the situation.
ABC News reported that a witness to the attack identified only as “Eugene” described the terrifying scene.
“Everybody was running, everything was happening so fast,” said Eugene, who noted that the attack occurred near Stuyvesant High School, where an untold number of children were.

“Thank God the trick-or-treaters weren’t out yet,” he said.
Eugene also claimed to witness the shootout between the apparent terrorist and police officers, and stated that he heard about up to 10 shots fired.
When asked if he thought the driver had acted deliberately, Eugene replied, “Yes, of course.”
