Terror Attack In NYC Involving Rental Van — Suspect Taken Alive Comments (0)

There are reports of multiple deaths and many injuries in lower Manhattan in an incident during which a white rental van from Home Depot mowed down a number of people along a long bike path before the driver emerged, shouted various things that made it obvious his motivation was terrorism while brandishing fake guns, and was shot in the abdomen by the NYPD.

So far, there are confirmed to be eight dead, and more than 12 injured, according to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Governor Cuomo confirmed it was an act of terrorism. (Updated)

The suspect is said to be of Middle Eastern descent and is rumored to be a Florida resident.

There was also concern that the truck may have had devices on it that could be bombs, but those devices were determined to be fake.

Lone-wolf dirtbags inspired by ISIS — as this will likely turn out to be — will never put a dent in NYC. If all they've got is rental vans, they'll do damage but we survived 9/11 and will handle any pathetic, murderous actions they throw at us. They are a speck compared to the people of NYC.
