(FOX NEWS) – At least eight people are dead after a driver barreled into a bike path and crashed a rental pickup truck into a crowd in Lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” law enforcement sources tell Fox News and The Associated Press.

Another 11 people were injured, officials said. The 29-year-old driver, possibly a Middle Eastern man with a beard, was shot by police and taken into custody, law enforcement sources told Fox News. The suspect remains hospitalized.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking at a press conference Tuesday evening, called the incident “an act of terror.”

“This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians,” de Blasio said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo referred to the incident as a “lone wolf” attack, and added that at this point in the investigation, there is no evidence to suggest that there was a wider plot.
