(CNN)All it took was a man and a truck to inflict the deadliest terror attack on

New York City since 9/11.

A 29-year-old man plowed into a crowd of bicyclists and pedestrians just blocks
away from the World Trade Center Tuesday afternoon. Mangled bicycles littered the
street as medics rushed to the victims.
Six victims were killed instantly. Two others died later. And 11 are trying to
recover as authorities try to figure out what led to the attack.

"This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at
innocent civilians, aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what
was about to hit them," New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The suspect has been identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, according to two
law enforcement sources. The Uzbekistan native allegedly drove a rented pickup
truck onto a busy bike path, crashed the truck into a school bus, then stepped
outside brandishing imitation firearms.
A police officer shot Saipov in the abdomen, but the suspect survived and underwent
surgery Tuesday evening. It's unclear what Saipov might tell investigators.
Here are the latest developments in the attack:
Saipov had been an Uber driver in New Jersey for over six months, the company told
CNN. Uber is cooperating with authorities in the investigation.
The President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev said in an open letter published
Wednesday that his country will use all "means necessary" to help the
investigation. The suspect came to the US from the central Asian nation in 2010.
The New York police officer who shot and apprehended Saipov has been identified as
Ryan Nash, a law enforcement source told CNN. The 28-year-old officer joined the
department in 2012.
Argentina's Ministry of Foreign Affairs tweeted that five Argentine citizens were
killed.
Authorities found a note near the truck used in the attack claiming the action was
taken in the name of ISIS , a senior law enforcement official said.

Officers were able to talk to Saipov before the surgery, but it was unclear if he
told them anything, a law enforcement source told CNN.
Saipov came to the United States in 2010 from the central Asian nation of
Uzbekistan, a law enforcement source said.
Most recently, he lived in New Jersey, according to a law enforcement source.
Neighbors said he recently lived at least part-time in Paterson, New Jersey, not
far from New York.
Just over six months ago, Saipov began driving for Uber in New Jersey, the company
told CNN. He passed a background check and did not have any rider complaints about
his safety as a driver, according to Uber.

He once listed his occupation as a truck driver, his marriage license shows.
Saipov had multiple run-ins with law enforcement in several states, online records
show. He had traffic citations issued in Missouri and Pennsylvania and was arrested
by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in October 2016 after failing to show up in
court for a misdemeanor offense.
He paid a $200 bond, which he forfeited when he didn't show up in court for his
next hearing in November. A guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
The victims
Among the eight people killed, five were friends from Argentina celebrating their
high school reunion in New York City, Argentina's Foreign Affairs Ministry said.
