At least five people have been injured in the streets of Manhattan when a truck went the wrong way down a bike path, mowing down people. He said he then heard seven to eight shots and then police pointing a gun at a man kneeling on the pavement.

The suspect in the Manhattan truck attack, a 29-year-old man, crashed his truck and then was shot by police in the abdomen, New York Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill said.

"A guy got out with his biker jacket and started shootin gup the place", he said.

Six people have died and at least nine are injured after a van drove onto a bicycle path near the World Trade Center on Tuesday, a source told The Associated Press. The driver was then shot by police after jumping out with what turned out to be two fake guns.

Two adults and two children in the school bus were hurt, police say.

"It's really bad down here", the person said.

NY governor Andrew Cuomo said the cycle path incident was a "lone-wolf" attack, and there was no evidence it was part of a wider plot.

NYPD News' official Twitter account confirms that there are "several fatalities" and the suspect "is in custody". He's got a gun.' I didn't see any gun.

Two people at the scene also said they heard four gunshots.

The incident happened near both Stuyvesant High School and Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Police advised people to avoid the area around Chambers St. and West St.

Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) was heading to the scene on Tuesday afternoon, according to his office.

NY officials say the suspect is a 29-year-old male but did not release his identity.

Sanders says, "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected".
