Manhattan: Reports attacker screamed Allahu Akbar, ran over cyclists killing 8, one man in custody

Manhattan Truck Driver Terrorist Identified

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov – Manhattan Muslim Terrorist

Several officials have identified the New York City truck attacker who killed eight people and injured others as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov from Tampa, Fla.

Although New York officials during Tuesday’s official press conference declined to list any details about the suspect other than the fact that he is a 29-year-old male and not from New York, several officials told ABC News that the suspect is Saipov from Florida.

CBS News also confirmed that the attacker’s full name is Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov.

Update 2: Source: Lower Manhattan suspect yelled ‘allah akhbar’

More.. Police sources are stating the attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar”

The suspect, who was shot by police, then plowed his car into multiple people on the path, killing up to six and injuring several others, according to cops.

He continued driving south and hit another car, then got out and displayed “imitation firearms,” police said.

The man then shouted, “Allahu Akbar,” according to police sources.

Update: Reports are stating the perp had imitation handguns.

A gunman opened fire from a Home Depot truck that apparently plowed down four riders on a bike path Tuesday off the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan, eyewitnesses said.

The NYPD reported one man was in custody after initial reports of gunfire set off a mad scramble in the downtown area.

Witnesses reported seeing a gunman firing from inside a Home Depot truck, and video showed a truck from the home improvement store sitting on a median.

  • favill

    I’m of two minds on this issue. One part of me feels badly for these victims of the Jihad, because as a human being I can imagine the horror and pain they must have felt just before they died and the feelings of loss their loved ones will feel when they find/found out about the deaths of their loved ones. However, the other part of me feels that these victims probably opposed Trump, probably cheered when the left-wing judges stalled Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from certain Muslim countries, probably voted for Hillary, they were probably eco-freaks (hint: they were riding bicycles in late Oct), pooh-poohed the warnings of Islamic jihad, and probably thought Obama was a great president….so, that part of me isn’t all that unhappy they died, especially in a left-wing city like New York.

    • Manhattan hates Trump no question.

      • terrence22

        and mayor de Blasio especially hates Trump

    We need a bunch of large non-Muslims to start storming mosques, during services, and stage a disruption against Islamic terrorism.
    Follow the entire “white privilege” playbook.
    You may not be an extremist mr. good Muslim, but you benefit from the terror spread by the Muslim terrorists.
    They must publicly DENOUNCE Islamic terrorism and make sizable financial contributions to Pam Geller and Robert Spencer.
    That last part is from the Jessie Jackson’s corporate shakedown manual.

        there is your trump tie in right there cuomos retarded brother will really run with that.

  • Raymond Hietapakka
    • Damn good to know!

      • Ironically the only type of “collusion” with Russia that Trump was seeking was collusion in terms of fighting Islamic terrorism. And I assume that wasn’t just in terms of a military response on the battlefield, but also in terms of sharing critical intelligence to prevent these sorts of attacks on civilian targets in the West.

        But the Dems, in collusion with establishment Republicans like the treasonous slander-monger John McCain, derailed any possibility for that to occur. Probably forever. I hope you are reflecting on that Mr. McCain as you go to meet your Maker and give account for your actions…

  • Cuomo called this a “lone wolf ” attack.

    That’s helpful.

    • JoKeR
      • Why so few of them?

        • I’m a “lone wolf”. In fact as I write, I have a large print of a lone Canadian timber wolf hanging across from me on my wall (about five feet x four feet large). It’s a beautiful print — the wolf is standing in a shallow stream during the spring melt observing the landscape. It’s been hanging there for ten years and perfectly reflects who I am at this point in my life. Although somebody once told me that it looks like a female wolf.

          Funny, it’s never inspired me to rent a truck and kill a bunch of innocent people. The only thing it’s reminded me of is how much I miss hiking in the wilderness and convening with God and nature.

          • My dog (God rest his furry soul) was part wolf.

            He never once drove a truck into a crowd.

            He may have jumped onto said crowd but I think that he was trying to be friendly, as was his wont.

  • tom_billesley

    US President Donald Trump called the attacker “a very sick and deranged person.”
    Nah. Just a common-or-garden muzzloid.

    • Alain

      Then that is very disappointing. I expected better from him.

    I can understand a jihadi having imitation guns in Australia or GB where guns are harder to obtain, but why in the US?

    • Clink9

      He wanted suicide by cop.

    • Because they’re cooperating with the Dem’s “anti-gun” narrative as much as possible. Las Vegas should have made that clear to everyone once for all. Islamists are not stupid — they’ve studied our politics and know our weaknesses, they know the issues that they can exploit to advance their cause. They understand that Americans (especially on the Left) are more concerned with image — not substance — in fighting the Jihad. Hence its a winning strategy for the Jihad. The long-term value of terrorism isn’t so much in terms of body count, but in terms of how it can invoke terror in the general population while at the same time providing Westerners the opportunity to rationalize it politically and culturally in order to invoke “surrender”.

      Something like that, anyway.

    Apparently, de Blasio did not listen to “moderate” imam about the threat of terrorists in NYC
