At least 8 people are dead and at least 11 injured after an attacker mowed into bicyclists and pedestrians on a bike path in lower Manhattan, per NYPD. The suspect eventually struck a school bus, injuring two adults and two children inside.

The suspect, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, is originally from Uzbekistan but relocated to the U.S. in 2010 and has a green card. Saipov, 29, has lived in Tampa, Florida and Paterson, New Jersey, per the NYT. He was shot by police after exiting the vehicle with two imitation firearms, and is in custody. Officials say there is no indication of a wider plot.
