The Daily Mail reported:

The driver was in a Home Depot truck and is believed to have been driving in the wrong direction down a cycle path on the West Side Highway where he fatally struck two cyclists.

They are then reported to have hopped out the vehicle with a gun in their hand, prompting police nearby to draw their guns and fire.  The perpetrator is alive and was taken to custody but is injured.

CNN cited senior NYPD sources who said at least six people were feared dead.

The incident is said to have taken place near Chambers and Houston Street. The first report of the incident came over the NYC police scanner radio at around 3.20pm.

Singer Josh Groban also tweeted after hearing ‘gun shots’ while out walking his dog.

‘Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F***,’ he said.

Simultaneous reports of the same incident suggested that a truck drove into the bicycle lane and mowed down cyclists and pedestrians.

Breaking 911 reported the following:

Several pedestrians and bicyclists were run down by a vehicle in Lower Manhattan Tuesday. The scene is near Hudson Street and Chambers Street.

According to witnesses, a man in a box truck veered off the road and struck the victims. The unidentified suspect was later taking into custody.

There were multiple reports of gunfire in the area following the incident—–it was unclear if these reports are related.

According to Heavy.com, one person is reportedly in custody and police say the threat is over.

However, Fox News’s live coverage stated that the New York City Police have called in the Bomb Squad to examine the vehicles involved with the incident.

According to a witness speaking to the New York Post, a man exited the vehicle with two guns and opened fire.

The gunman, who is in police custody, shot at least six people at West Street and Chambers Street, which is near Stuyvesant High School, at 3:15 p.m.

“What happened was there was a car crash… he came out of one of the cars. He had two guns. He was running around Chambers and somebody started to chase him,” said a 14-year-old Stuyvesant student. “I heard four to six gunshots – everybody starts running.”

Video of the scene shows at least two people lying limp in the street. Photos show a smashed up Home Depot rental truck.

This is obviously a fluid situation. We’ll keep this story updated as we learn more information.
