NY holds annual Halloween parade hours after deadly attack

The driver of a truck which mowed down seven people on the West Side Highway bike path on Tuesday afternoon

At least eight people are dead and dozens more were injured Tuesday afternoon when a man drove a rented truck through a bike path in the Lower Manhattan section of NY.

"Our thoughts are with the people of NY and the families of the victims as they deal with this tragic incident", police said in the release.

Thousands of costumed revellers took to the streets for the city's annual village Halloween parade. Over 2 million people attend the Halloween event, which is also broadcast on TV. Only costumed participants were allowed to march in the parade.

Newsham said in the wake of the New York City attack, the public must play a major role in community safety. Police shot the gunman, who was taken into custody.

The annual holiday parade carried on despite the truck attack in lower Manhattan just hours before, which left eight dead and more than a dozen injured when the vehicle rammed into pedestrians.

"This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians", de Blasio said at a news conference.

NYPD officials have called it a terror attack, but believe there's no further threat.
