Suspect Sayfullo Saipov, who was reportedly living in Tampa, Fla., drove a rented Home Depot van onto a bike path in lower Manhattan Tuesday, killing at least eight people and injuring numerous others.

“I saw the car crash so I ran up the bridge,” a witness told PIX11. “When I ran up the bridge, I saw this dude with two guns. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around. He was getting chased. And then all of the sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running.”

Saipov reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he drove into pedestrians while brandishing two fake guns, The New York Post reported.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the rampage an “act of terror” Tuesday, adding it was “A particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
