NEW YORK-As many as six people are dead after what appears to have been a deliberate vehicle attack in Lower-Manhattan Tuesday afternoon.
The attack happened along a busy bike and jogging path not far from Freedom Tower and the Financial District. Police are not disclosing a motive at this time but have not ruled out terrorism.
Initial reports indicate that a truck drove the wrong way for several blocks, striking multiple people. Video from the scene showed images of a mangled truck and multiple people with injuries.
Authorities say police shot and wounded the suspect, after he wrecked his rental pick-up truck into a school bus. Sources say the suspect wielded what appears to have been two fake handguns. The suspect is in custody. Passengers on the school bus had minor injuries.
