Around 3:25 pm Eastern time Tuesday, a truck drove into a pedestrian and bike path in Lower Manhattan in New York City. The New York Police Department confirmed "several fatalities" and "numerous people injured." The truck continued along the path until it hit another vehicle, at which point the suspect got out of the truck bearing imitation firearms, according to the police. The suspect was then shot by authorities and is now in custody, police say. "Based on the information we have so far, this was an act of terror," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference hours after the attack.
