On the pretext of the today vehicular terrorist attack in Manhattan that killed eight and injured at least 12 others on Tuesday, Trump has taken to Twitter to announce stricter restraints on granting entry to the US.
Trump’s “extreme vetting” of refugees and immigrants from select countries has been challenged multiple times in federal court, and the US Supreme Court has before it his travel ban policy against several Muslim-majority countries and Chad, North Korea and Venezuela.
Uzbekistan is not among the countries on Trump’s travel ban.
Six people were reported dead on the scene, and two others were pronounced dead at the hospital, another 11 were transported to the hospital with “serious, but not life threatening” injuries, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neil told reporters.
O’Neil said that the suspect was a 29-year-old male. He said that the man had a paintball gun and a pellet gun, pointing them at people.
The suspect was hospitalized after being shot in the stomach by police. The suspect had exited his vehicle after striking a school bus, with two adults and two children inside. The suspect left the vehicle “displaying imitation firearms” and was shot by police officers before being taken into custody.
After colliding with the school bus the man exited holding two firearms. An officer assigned to the area fired, striking him in the stomach.
