Police said the vehicle, a rented Home Depot truck, entered the bike path on West Street a few blocks from the World Trade Center memorial and struck at least 15 people, leaving mangled bicycles behind.

The suspect then got out of the truck, yelled "Allahu akbar" and displayed a paintball gun and a pellet gun. "There are several fatalities and numerous people injured", the New York Police Department said in a series of tweets describing the act. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around.

Uber driver Chen Yi said he saw a truck plow into people on a popular bike path adjacent to the West Side Highway. "And then all of the sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running".

A witness said the truck also collided with a small bus and one other vehicle.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo also issued a statement, saying: "To New Yorkers: be New Yorkers, live your life, and don't let them change us or deter us in any way, manner, shape, or form".
