Motivated by ISIS, 29 year old Sayfullo Saipo crashed his rental truck into a bike path killing 9 and injuring 13.

John Miller, New York Police Department deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism spoke on the terrorist:

“It appears that Mr. Saipov has been planning this for a number of weeks. He did this in the name of ISIS. He appears to have followed — almost exactly to a T — the instructions that ISIS has put out in its social media channels before, with instructions to their followers on how to carry out such an attack.”

ISIS has not made any official claim of affiliation with the suspect at this time.
