Eight Dead in New York City Vehicle Attack
It fits a deadly pattern. At least eight people were killed—five of those Argentine tourists—and 11 injured after a motorist veered onto a New York City bicycle path, mowing down pedestrians and emerging from his car brandishing a fake gun. The Uzbek national was taken into custody after being shot by police officers. Authorities believe it to be a terrorist attack. The attack comes just two months after a similar incident in Barcelona, where a driver killed 13 people after careering down a prominent tourist boulevard.
