    Eight people were killed and more than a dozen injured in what New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said appeared to be a "cowardly" terrorism attack on Tuesday when a pickup truck drove at high speed down a bike path in Manhattan.

    Speaking at a news conference alongside the mayor, New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill said the driver was a 29-year-old man. He said authorities would not immediately be releasing his identity.

    Earlier: A pickup truck struck down multiple people on a bike path in lower Manhattan, killing several and injuring numerous others on Tuesdayafternoon, before the driver was shot and taken into custody, the New York City police said.

    The pickup truck crashed into another vehicle after striking bicyclists and pedestrians, and the driver got out wielding what police later said were "imitation" guns. The driver was shot by police before being taken into custody, the New York City Police Department said in a posting on its Twitter account.

    The federal government was treating it as a terrorist attack, two U.S. government officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    A police spokesman posted a photo showing a white pickup truck on the bike path with its front end mangled and the hood crumpled. The truck was adorned with logos of the Home Depot hardware store chain.

    Mangled and flattened bicycles littered the bike path, which runs parallel to the West Side Highway on the western edge of Manhattan along the Hudson River.

    One witness, John Williams, a 22-year-old student, told reporters at the scene that he heard about five gunshots before seeing a large man with curly being taken into custody.

    "He seemed very calm," Williams said. "He was not putting up a fight."

    The police have not confirmed any gunfire besides shots fired by officers.

    A witness told ABC Channel 7 that he saw a white pick-up truck drive south on the bike path at full speed and hit several people. The witness, who was identified only as Eugene, said bodies were lying outside Stuyvesant High School, one of the city's elite public schools.

    A video apparently filmed at the scene and circulated online showed scattered bikes on the bike path and at least two people lying on the ground.

    Both U.S. President Donald President and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio had been briefed about the incident, their offices said. The office of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the governor was heading to the scene.

    AT LEAST eight people have been killed in New York after a man drove a ute onto a busy bike path and yelled “Allahu Akhbar” as he emerged with a fake gun in each hand.

    The 29-year-old man, who was shot and taken into custody by police, injured at least 15 people at West Street and Chambers Street, which is near the site of the World Trade Centre attacks, at 3.15pm Tuesday afternoon local time.

    Two children travelling on a school bus were among the injured, after the truck rammed into the side of the vehicle.

    Witnesses told the New York Police Department the man was heard yelling: “Allahu Akhbar” when he emerged from the ute.

    The attacker has been named by CBS as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipovm, 29, of Tampa, Florida.

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told a media conference the attack was a “cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent people ... who had no idea what was about to hit them.”

    Governor Andrew Cuomo called it a “lone wolf” attack. He says there was no evidence to suggest it was part of a wider plot.

    Six men were pronounced dead at the scene while two other people were taken to hospital and died there.

    “We also transported 11 people, all with serious, but at this moment, not life-threatening injuries. The injuries are what you might expect when a truck at high speed went down that bicycle path and struck cyclists and pedestrians. There may be more injuries and we will determine that later,” New York City Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

    In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!

    The man hit a school bus that was carrying two adults and two children, before he drove onto the bike path. Dramatic images showed mangled bikes left strewn across the pavement, while two bodies could be seen lying under a tarp.

    The attack comes just hours before New York’s annual Halloween parade, which attracts thousands to the West Village, a few blocks north of Lower Manhattan.

    It’s believed the people killed were run over by the truck, rather than being shot. Police told local media the guns the motorist was carrying were fake — a paint gun and a pellet gun.

    Student Tawhid Kabir, 20, told news.com.au from near the scene: “I came out and saw a cop. “I thought it was an accident so I went to see what happened.”

    He saw a man with “two guns”.

    “He was running in the middle of the street ... There was another guy not in a cop uniform who was also chasing him.”

    The students all dropped to the ground when shots, now thought to have been fired by police, rang out. “When I heard the gunshots I was so scared.”

    Local worker Eugene Duffy described to news.com.au the anguished screams he heard as the attack unfolded.

    “I heard a woman. It was a different kind of yelling, a different kind of screaming. A very scary scream.”

    He turned and saw the attacker’s ute.

    “I immediately think something bad is happening...I [saw] the truck drive into another car.”

    He didn’t see the man — but saw panicked people running every direction they could to get to safety.

    Mr Duffy said it was lucky that it happened on the West Side Highway on a weekday, not on a weekend.

    “There’s always joggers, people walking their dogs and riding bikes.”

    A young girl watched the carnage happen. “I feel very bad for that girl. She must have seen it all.

    Simranjeet Kalra, 21, of Long Island, said she saw two dead cyclists who had been riding City Bikes.

    “What happened was there was a car crash … he came out of one of the cars. He had two guns. He was running around Chambers and somebody started to chase him,” another Stuyvesant student Laith Bahlouli, 14, said.

    “I heard four to six gunshots — everybody starts running.”

    he attack occurred in the shadow of the World Trade Cenre and in the middle of an education precinct that was filled with students, leaving those at the scene to question if that had been why the area was targeted.

    The man was seen running towards a group of children when he got out of the ute.

    Local treets were filled with police and media — but there still groups of children in costumes who were trick or treating nearby.

    Witnesses described a scene of terror, saying the shooter ran over two people before ploughing 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. Video of the scene shows at least two people lying limp in 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.

    Uber driver Chen Yi said he saw a truck plough into people on a popular bike path adjacent to the West Side Highway. He said he then heard seven to eight shots and then police pointing a gun at a man kneeling on the pavement. “I saw a lot of blood over there. A lot of people on the ground,” Yi said. His passenger, Dmitry Metlitsky, said he also saw police standing near a man who was on his knees with his hands up, and another man bleeding on the ground nearby. He said the truck had also collided with a small school bus and one other vehicle.

    A witness told ABC’s New York station WABC: “Everybody started running ... [the driver] kept going all the way down full speed.”

    If the attack had happened much later, the street would have been full of trick-or-treaters, the witness added.

    A spokesman for Bill de Blasio said there was “no active threat” as the mayor and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was also headed to the scene.

    The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force has joined the NYPD on the scene, according to NBC.

    President Donald Trump has been briefed on the incident, the White House said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected,” spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

    How good are the coppers? Shot him in the ass and kept him alive. Hopefully they get some good information out of him.

    Comments on this story on facebook are f**king frightening. It seems the conspiracy/false flag community is very large and active.

    Not a chance. Nothing to do with hatred either though.

    New York does not have the death penalty either. Looks like this wacko will be spending the rest of his days in solitary confinement... that's if they don't put him in a cell with some other psycho who will rough him up first!

    Yeah, he ran around with replica guns because he wanted to be martyred just like the fake suicide vests in London. Now what would drive anyone to kill innocent people and seek death right after?

    I don't engage in slacktivism in general. I support gay marriage but use those filters either.

    It's shithouse that more innocent people pay with their lives due to mindless violence.

    I run on that track 5 days a week, so this one is particularly f**ked I have to say.

    Only wish they’d killed the f**kstick. Instead he’ll live long enough to read about how much of a hero he is to the people he worships.

    Quite obvious. We need to turn the Middle East into a radioactive wasteland.
