At least six people were killed and 15 were injured when a truck driver deliberately mowed down people in lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, officials tell News 4 New York.
More than a dozen people were hit when a Home Depot rental truck zoomed at least 10 blocks down a popular bike bath from West Houston to Chambers streets. MORE
A box truck driver mowed down multiple people on a street in lower Manhattan, and at least one of them is dead, a senior New York City official tells News 4 New York.
Sources initially said they were responding to a report of at least five people shot near West and Chambers streets in Tribeca, but officials say their investigation now shows the injuries appear to have come from the truck crash.
The box truck driver headed the wrong way down a bicycle path, mowing down several people, sources say. The box truck then collided with a Home Deport rental truck, and the box truck driver got out with what appeared to be a firearm.
He was then shot by police, according to sources. He’s in custody, police say.
A large number of police vehicles could be seen near West Street and Chambers Street in Tribeca, which is near a community college, Stuyvesant High School, and a few blocks north of the National Sept. 11 Memorial.
Students from the top-ranked Stuyvesant High School and other witnesses in the area tweeted that they’d heard gunshots. A message has been left with the Department of Education.
The NYPD tweeted that a person is in custody, and police activity has shut down the area.
Apparently an active shooter in Battery Park City according to kid I tutor. Stay safe everybody.
Three to four gunshots just went off by my job. Think they came from Stuyvesant high school…
