Eight have been killed and more than a dozen injured according to a 5:20 PM press conference hosted by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"The truck driver who plowed into several people along the West Side bike path shouted “Allahu Akbar” after getting out of his vehicle, according to sources. He also displayed “imitation firearms” that panicked witnesses thought were real. Six people were killed on the bike path before the driver was shot by police. He is expected to survive," according to the New York Post.
