Police are reporting multiple casualties after a truck drove down a bike path in lower Manhattan, mowing people down in its path.
ABC News is reporting that 7 people are dead.
NYPD told CNN that a white truck drove several blocks down the bike path going the wrong way. The driver exited the vehicle and appeared to have a gun. Police shot him and took him into custody.
The mayor's office said there is no longer any active threat.
The event unfolded just a few blocks away from the World Trade Center.
An Associated Press photographer on the scene Tuesday witnessed at least two bodies lying motionless on the path beneath tarps.
