Driver shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before driving into New York City bike lane killing at least 6 people

After initially being reported by ABC 7 and others as a “road rage incident” the deadly attack in New York City on Tuesday is now being investigated as a possible act of terrorism.

In addition, Fox News’ Rick Leventhal reported that a source with the Joint Terrorism Task Force reported that the driver shouted “Allahu Akbar” after exiting his rented Home Depot truck that he used to drive onto a bike lane and strike bicyclists and pedestrians in lower Manhattan near the World Trade Center.

The man shouted the Islamic phrase, meaning “God is great,” after getting out of the truck and waving what are believed to be a BB and paintball gun.

It was also reported that the murderer may have targeted children.

Media was quick to downplay the possible act of terrorism early on.

The Associated Press has reported six people are confirmed dead and nine injured.

Police say the man was shot by officers and is in custody.

The official says “it is being investigated as a possible case of terrorism.”
