'allahu akhbarist' kills 8, injures over a dozen with a truck in New York
The suspect has been identified as a 29-year-old from Uzbekistan who yelled 'Allahu akhbar' (what else?) But he didn't get his 72 virgins in paradise: although shot, he is now in custody.
The incident began at 3:05 p.m. when a rented Home Depot truck entered the bike path at Houston Street along the West Side Highway in Lower Manhattan, police said.
The truck rammed several people on the path from behind and ultimately crashed into a school bus at Chambers Street.
Two adults and two children – students – were on board the school bus and were injured, one student critically. More than a dozen people total were injured in the incident, two critically.
