Officers responded to a report of a man driving a U-Haul truck in the Bay Ridge neighborhood, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said at a press conference. The vehicle struck multiple people before being stopped by police near the entrance to a tunnel leading from Brooklyn to Manhattan, Sewell said.

The driver's arrest ended what Sewell called a "violent rampage." Sewell did not identify the driver during the press conference.

"We have no indication that there is any terrorism involvement in this incident," she said.
