Police Respond to Reports of Possible Shooting in Lower Manhattan

It appears several people were hit by a Home Depot truck in Lower Manhattan around Hudson Street and Chambers Street shortly after 3 p.m., according to WPIX. The driver, a 29-year-old man, was shot and then taken into custody by police after getting out of the rental truck armed with a paintball gun and an air rifle.

New York City's mayor says a truck attack in lower Manhattan killed eight people and was a "cowardly" act of terror. People are running past me, saying, 'He's got a gun.

A police spokesman posted a photo showing a white pickup truck on the bike path with its front end mangled and the hood crumpled.

He was then shot by police, according to sources.

The incident occurred at Chambers Street and West Street, which is near a community college, a high school and a few blocks north of the September 11 memorial. He said the truck had also collided with a small school bus and one other vehicle. Four people were removed from the bus and they had minor injuries, the official said. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is also responding to the scene. The individual is in police custody and is being taken to the hospital for treatment. "I see two dead bodies and citibikes on the floor destroyed", a Twitter user wrote. Nearby Stuyvesant High School was immediately locked down.
