Federal Bureau of Investigation no longer seeking person of interest in NYC terror attack

US Law Enforcement Hunting Second Person of Interest in NYC Truck Attack

Federal agents said they've located a man who associated with the Manhattan man who sped a truck down a New York City bike path, killing eight people and injuring a dozen others.

A wanted poster was initially released by the FBI Wednesday of Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, a 32-year-old native of Uzbekistan.

USA law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, separately on Wednesday said Saipov had been in contact with Kadirov and one other person.

Then during the briefing, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said they found Kadirov but didn't publicly elaborate on him or whether he has provided information to them.

"We have found him and I'll leave it at that", he added.

The FBI released a poster with scant details as to why they were looking to speak with Kadirov.

Earlier in the day, a US government source told Reuters that Saipov had been in contact with another individual individual who is now under investigation by the FBI for suspected terrorism-related activities.

It's unclear how recently or how long Saipov lived in Tampa, but he has a Florida driver's license and the apartment he stayed in is about five miles away from Kadirov's former home.

Police are asking for the public's help finding a second suspect in connection with Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City.

Authorities said Sapiov's cell phones held thousands of images relating to ISIS and 90 videos depicting ISIS fighters and prisoners being killed or beheaded.

Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old Uzbekistan immigrant who has been living in New Jersey, was charged on Wednesday with committing the attack in the name of the Islamic State militant group.
