This Is What We Know About The Manhattan Truck Attack Suspect

The incident appeared to have echoes of the London Bridge terror attack in June - when Islamic State terrorists used a Hertz rental van hired from a B&Q hardware store to mow down pedestrians before stabbing a number of victims nearby.

In the attack Tuesday, police said the suspect entered the West Side bike path at Houston Street in a rented Home Depot truck around 3 p.m.

And earlier this year, a driver from the Bronx jumped a curb in Times Square and hit almost two dozen people as he drove on the sidewalks - allegedly intoxicated by PCP - for three blocks.

Eleven more people were taken to hospitals with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

2001: On the morning of Sept 11, members of al Qaeda flew two passenger planes into the north and south towers of Manhattan's World Trade Center.

He said the truck had also collided with a small school bus and one other vehicle. A police officer shot Saipov when he wouldn't drop the weapons, police said. The suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahimi of New Jersey, was captured after a shootout with police.

One person on the bus was critically injured and rushed to Bellevue Hospital. No other is outstanding.

The FBI and NY police urged members of the public to come forward with any information that could assist the investigation, which the mayor said preliminary information suggested was a lone wolf assault.

Saipov passed Uber's background check that screens out drivers with felony convictions and those who have more than three minor traffic violations in the last three years.

Sayfullo Saipov was born in Uzbekistan and is believed to have moved from Uzbekistan to Tampa, Florida, in 2010.

According to court records, Saipov was stopped for several offenses in multiple states. Sources tell ABC News that in addition to an address in Tampa, he also lived in OH and most recently, in Paterson, New Jersey.

Eyewitnesses told the police that upon stepping out of the auto, Saipov yelled "Allahu Akbar", Arabic for "God is Great".

The suspect, identified in media reports as 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, was reportedly heard yelling "Allahu Akbar", Arabic for "God is great", after he exited the truck.

While police did not specifically blame the Islamic State for the NY bloodshed, Trump railed against the extremist group, tweeting: "We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere".

Several hours after publishing his comments on Twitter, the White House released a more formal statement. "Thinking of the victims, their families, & the responders who saved lives", Clinton tweeted Tuesday. These fearless men and women embody the true American spirit of resilience and courage. "I will continue to follow developments closely", the president said.
