NYPD Commends Officer Ryan Nash for Saving Lives in Manhattan Truck Jihad

Saipov allegedly killed at least eight people when he mowed them down on the West Side Highway bike path on Tuesday afternoon. He

O'Neill said that the officers were at Stuyvesant High School for an unrelated call, and someone came in and told them there was an accident at West and Chambers Street.

Saipov was brandishing two handguns - which turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun - and Nash opened fire, striking him in the stomach and ending his rampage.

"He was a hero", Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

When Saipov dropped to the pavement, a civilian - who had previously attempted to tackle the suspect as he was getting out of the rented truck - approached the wounded man, who was still clutching the two weapons.

Saipov, 29, a native of Uzbekistan who entered the United States in 2010, was under arrest and hospitalized Wednesday. CBS reports that Nash was taken to the hospital for ringing ears but that he was otherwise unhurt.

"While we mourn the bad loss of life and the injuries to innocent people we are proud of and grateful for the quick action of a team of police officers who responded to cries for help and took charge of a chaotic and unsafe situation".




He followed "almost exactly to a T the instructions that ISIS has put out on social media about how to carry out such an attack", John Miller, deputy commission of NYPD counter-intelligence, said.

Officer Nash has two awards for excellent police duty, one for meritorious police duty from the NYPD and will soon be decorated with more. But Nash didn't know that when he confronted the suspect, O'Neill said. "We have first responders who are heroes. He did a good job", neighbor Gene Boles said.

Investigators inspect a truck following a shooting incident in New York, Oct. 31, 2017. They showed great courage.

The suspect had intentionally driven into a crowd of pedestrians and cyclists in a bike path in Lower Manhattan before he crashed his rental truck into a school bus.

Irish Central report that Nash, a police officer since 2012 and a member of the Emerald Society, was responding to a different call when the gruesome terrorist killings began.
