NEW YORK -- Police and witnesses say a motorist drove onto a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center memorial in Manhattan and struck several people, then emerged from the vehicle screaming and brandishing imitation firearms.

Six people were killed in what was described as an intentional act, sources told CBS News. The NYPD tweeted that the driver exited the car displaying the imitation firearms and was shot by police officers.

Law enforcement sources said the incident is being investigated as a terror attack, CBS News' Pat Milton reports.

Remember the olden days where if you heard someone mowed over 8 people with a car or truck it wasn't oh god terrorism, But was "who forgot to hide grandpa's keys"

That's sad to hear. Better than a plane but still tragic. I feel like I'm starting to become desensitized to this. RIP victims and praying for their families.

Wouldn't it be Uzbekistan?

And on the nature of the attack, I think more barriers and bollards will need to be installed around the cities, Melbourne has installed some in response to the recent truck attacks.

I would never suggest banning Uzbeks's from travelling to the USA (Let alone any countries, besides maybe Somalia), I was just saying Uzbekistan makes more sense if you're going to talk about the travel ban (Even as a joke).

Lot of conflicting information on this one so far. But the suspect did live so at least they can interrogate him then let him rot in a cell.

It sounds like he wanted to suicide by cop but he only had a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

At this point after similar attacks in the UK, some of the US based forum trolls pointed out that it was our fault for not following US policies.

It is a sad way to prove that yet again our forum trolls are short sighted idiots.
