In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2017
We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2017
The New York City Police Department tweeted that the vehicle struck a school bus, then the driver “got out displaying imitation firearms" and was shot by police. The suspect, a 29-year-old male, was taken into custody.
A paintball gun and pellet gun were recovered from the scene.
In a statement, London mayor Sadiq Khan said: "London stands in grief and solidarity with the great city of New York after the despicable and cowardly terrorist attack in Manhattan."
"New Yorkers are strong and resilient - I know they will not be cowed by this assault on the innocent, and on our shared values and way of life," he said.
