Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review reacted to news of the suspected terrorist’s origins:

Update 2:  In the first news conference about the attack, Mayor de Blasio, Governor Cuomu, and members law enforcement verified that it was a terrorist attack. They raised the death count to eight and praised the police officer who shot the terrorist.

NYPD is currently considering this to be a “lone wolf” attack and does not believe there will be additional terrorist attacks in the city.

The suspect is a 29-year-old male. He was shot by police in the abdomen. He had a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

Two adults and two children riding a bus that was struck by the terrorist’s truck were injured.

Update 1: Reports are coming in that the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” after emerging from the truck.

At least eight people are dead after a terrorist mowed down cyclists in Lower Manhattan around 3:10 pm EST. The suspect is in custody. The incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack.

Multiple people have been injured. Reports are coming in that the terrorist first used a rented Home Depot box truck to try to run over cyclists. Witnesses say he intentionally merged into the bike lane to mow them down.

After crashing the truck, he emerged with two guns which turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun. He was shot by police before being taken into custody.

“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.”

We will update this post as it develops.

New York police and other authorities declined to release the 29-year-old suspect’s name in an early evening press conference after the Halloween afternoon attack, but the mayor publicly and quickly called the car ramming an “act of terror.” ABC News and other media outlets named the suspect as Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida. According to CBS News, the terror suspect is “Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, apparently from Uzbekistan.” He is an Uzbekh national who was not born in the United States, according to NBC.

    Before political opportunists try to use this criminal attack as a pretext for their agenda, it’s not too early to remind readers that New York City is a gun-control, bike-friendly, anti-combustion engine, sanctuary city. And that except for a tiny sliver north of Times Square, Hillary carried all of Manhattan and often by margins of four or five-to-one.
