Sayfullo Saipov has been identified by police insiders as the man who ran down more than a dozen civilians in New York on Tuesday from Florida. He's said to be the man on the ground; the terrorist was shot in the stomach after leaving his truck
Saipov (seen left) was allegedly seen moments before he was shot trying to flee the scene. The attacker (right) brandished two fake weapons - a pellet gun and a paint gun - after getting out of the truck, leading to him being shot
Saidpov is reportedly seen here holding his two fake guns after climbing out of the Home Depot truck. He ran about a block south of the crash before being shot
This is the rented Home Depot truck that plowed through cyclists and runners on the bicycle path. It only stopped when Saipov allegedly deliberately struck a schoolbus at an intersection
The side of the bus crumpled in, collapsing onto the chairs - and children - inside. Two children and two adults were hospitalized after the crash. One of the children was in critical condition
Shattered bicycles are seen here on the West Side Highway bike path where eight people were killed and at least 15 more injured. At least five of those who were killed had rented Citibikes before they were hit
Police investigated this apartment building on Genesse Ave in Paterson, New Jersey, where the suspect is alleged to have lived prior to the attacks
A police officer is seen here blocking off the road leading to the apartment where he's believed to live. It's unclear if anyone else lived in the Paterson apartment with Saipov
The front of the Tampa, Florida apartment building that Saipov also listed as an address is pictured on Tuesday night
Saipov was cited in Pennsylvania in 2015 for 'Max length of a single trailer' and pleaded guilty
He paid the associated fines from the citation. He was also cited for a traffic violation in Missouri in 2016
The crash area is just seven blocks from Ground Zero and is a stone's throw from City Hall
Saipov is pictured left in an arrest photo after he failed to pay a traffic citation in St. Charles County, Missouri 2016. He was shot and wounded by Officer Ryan Nash (pictured right), a five-year veteran of the NYPD
Despite the day's terrifying events, New Yorkers still took to the streets to attend both Halloween parties and the annual Halloween Parade up 6th Avenue. The Freedom Tower can be seen in the back of the image
Heavily armed police were on the scene to protect paraders and spectators - part of the city's ramped-up security in the wake of the attack. Heavy vehicles were also placed at entrances along the parade route to stop cars from busting through
'It reminds us all how precious life is. They left the house the morning, they were enjoying the beautiful west side of Manhattan on a beautiful fall day and now they will not be returning home.
'That shock and that pain is going to be very real,' he said.
At the time, school children were being let out of class after a day of Halloween festivities.
City officials said there would be an increased police presence across New York for the rest of the day and week
