  • Federal Bureau of Investigation seeks second suspect in relation to NY truck attack

The FBI is no longer seeking a second man in connection with the lower Manhattan truck assault that killed eight people, authorities said Wednesday. A senior law enforcement official told ABC News that Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, a friend of suspect Sayfullo Saipov, was found and will be questioned about possible advanced knowledge of the attack.

A photograph of Mukhammadzoir Kadirov was released on Wednesday and those with information urged to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Sweeney said, "We have found him and we will leave it at that".

Saipov, an Uzbekistan national who was living in Paterson, reportedly stepped out of the Home Depot truck he had rented earlier Tuesday afternoon in Passaic and shouted "God is great" in Arabic before being shot and wounded by a uniformed officer from the New York Police Department.


The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it is seeking a second Uzbek man in relation to the NY attack that killed eight people on a cycling and jogging path on October 31, 2017.

Prosecutors allege that Saipov had been planning the attack for weeks and that he was inspired by the Islamic State terror group. It was not clear whether or not Kadirov was that person. Eight people died and at least 12 were injured.

"He appears to have followed nearly 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", NYPD deputy commissioner John Miller said at a press conference. Anyone with information concerning the case is urged to contact the FBI's Toll-Free Tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
