The Associated Press reports:
The man who police say transformed a New York City bike path into a terror scene was an Uzbekistan native who made 1,400 trips as an Uber driver and formed two commercial truck businesses. Details of the life of the suspect — who had no known social media accounts — have just begun to emerge in the hours after Tuesday’s attack that killed eight people and injured at least 11.
Officials who were not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on the condition of anonymity identified Saipov as the attacker and said he is 29 and originally from Uzbekistan. He came to the U.S. legally in 2010, the officials said, and it is believed that he lived first in Ohio after his arrival.
Records show Saipov was a commercial truck driver who formed a pair of businesses in Ohio. The first business, Sayf Motors Inc., used the address of a family friend near Cincinnati with whom Saipov had stayed for a couple of weeks after his arrival in the country. The second, Bright Auto LLC, used an address near Cleveland.
