A suspect has been arrested in New York after people were reportedly shot by the driver of a car.

Police said they made the arrest after responding to "reports of shots fired" near the West Side Highway in Lower Manhattan.

They urged people to avoid the area as a major emergency services operation was under way.

Unconfirmed reports on social media suggest a man drove at cyclists in a cycling lane before opening fire.

Trump Train News has learned that at least 6 people are dead and 15 injured as a result of this intentional incident. Officials on the scene believe a school bus may have been one of the suspect's targets.

The shooter is in custody and alive. He was shot by police and is at the hospital. It's believed he is a male in his mid-thirties.

It's being reported that the FBI joint-terror task force is responding to this incident. There is no confirmation yet that this incident is a terror attack.
