Yesterday was another attack on America, that is happening all to often these days. 8 people where killed and 11 injured, when a n ISIS terrorist drove a rented pickup into pedestrians on a bike path in lower Manhattan. One first responders quick action stopped the rampage and saved lives.
NYPD Officer Ryan Nash is being called a hero, because he acted quickly and shot the driver. His actions disabled the attacker and saved many lives. Nash, 28, works in the NYPD’s 1st Precinct since 2012. At about 3:05pm the attacker ran his truck into a bike lane hitting pedestrians, Nash fired at the suspect when he exited the vehicle with imitation firearms and wounded him enough to save other lives and get the suspect in custody, according to PIX11.
Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said in a press conference “I want to commend the response of our NYPD officer that was on post near the location who stopped the carnage moments after it began."
God bless all our first responders who run into the danger when we're all running for our lives! Nash is a hero!
Praying for the families of those killed and injured in the attack. 5 of which where Argentinian tourists visiting NYC.
