At least eight people are dead after a Muslim barreled into a bike path and crashed a rental pickup truck into a crowd in Lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

Another 11 people were injured, officials said. The 29-year-old driver was shot by police and taken into custody, law enforcement sources told Fox News. The suspect remains hospitalized.

The suspected driver, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov remains hospitalized.

Four of the injured were teachers and students near Stuyvesant High School, who were riding on a short yellow school bus when the driver hit them with his Home Depot rental truck. One of the students remains in critical condition, according to a press release from NYC schools.

ABC reports that witness Andrew Howell said he was walking along the bike path when he saw a truck plow into two cyclists riding about 20 feet in front of him; he said the impact sent one of the victims straight up into the air, and the man was motionless when he landed back on the ground. The driver then continued at a high speed before crashing, Howell said.

President Trump reacted to the terror attack on Tuesday by saying it was done by a “sick and deranged person.”

“In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person,” the president tweeted. “Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!”

“We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!”

Then the president tweeted:

“My thoughts, condolences and prayers to the victims and families of the New York City terrorist attack. God and your country are with you!”

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the president has been briefed on the attack by chief of staff John Kelly and will be updated as “more details are known,” Fox News reports.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected,” Sanders said.

First lady Melania Trump also tweeted that her “heart breaks” for her hometown.

“My heart breaks for today. Thoughts & prayers as we monitor the situation.”

The FBI is investigating the incident as terrorism. It is being jointly investigated by both the New York Police Department and the FBI.

The Department of Homeland Security said its acting secretary, Elaine Duke, has also been briefed on “the apparent act of terrorism” and is “closely monitoring the situation and working with our federal, state and local partners in responding to and investigating this tragedy.”

“We have recently seen attacks like this one throughout the world,” the department said in a news release. “DHS and its law enforcement partners remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding the American people.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there was no evidence of a wider, ongoing threat but he said more police would be monitoring the streets on Halloween night. The city’s annual Halloween parade in the West Village, which is near the crime scene, will still take place tonight, officials said.
