NYPD Commends Officer Ryan Nash for Saving Lives in Manhattan Truck Jihad

Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill said the weapons were later determined to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

Before shooting Saipov, Nash was one of four officers called to a high school after a student had indicated he wanted to kill himself, according to the New York Times.

"All New Yorkers should be thankful to Ryan and his partner. So we all applaud and congratulate him", Cuomo said.

Mr Nash, from Long Island, has been praised widely after he was identified as the first responder to yesterday's attack by 29-year-old Uzbekistan national, Sayfullo Saipov. "They showed great courage", O'Neill said.

Hasiotis and two other officers, Michael Welsome and Kevin McGinn, secured the area, took witness statements and grabbed the guns. Saipov was wielding what appeared to be two weapons that he refused to drop on orders from the officers, police said.

The suspect had intentionally driven into a crowd of pedestrians and cyclists in a bike path in Lower Manhattan before he crashed his rental truck into a school bus.

Nash is new to the neighborhood, and many residents didn't know he was an officer until now.

"This is what he did for the city, and this is what he did for the country", O'Neill said.

Saipov was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery, prior to being interviewed by police.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and other civic leaders commended Nash for his cool head - and said he was a humble officer who felt like he was just doing his job.

"He is a hero, there is no doubt", New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told "CBS This Morning" Wednesday.

Nash is a New Jersey native who previously won two NYPD awards for Excellent Police Duty and one for Meritorious Police Duty, ABC News reported.

"Here's the hero cop the world should be talking about", City Councilman Joe Borelli tweeted.
