The Daily Telegraph reports that gunman, who is yet to be named, is currently in police custody. He reportedly drove down four cyclists before getting out of his heavy vehicle and shooting pedestrians at the intersection of West Street and Chambers Street, at 3:15pm.
“What happened was there was a car crash … he came out of one of the cars. He had two guns. He was running around Chambers and somebody started to chase him,” said a 14-year-old Stuyvesant student. “I heard four to six gunshots — everybody starts running.”
The exact number of fatalities is yet to be confirmed as this is a developing story.
