Ryan Nash identified as NYPD officer shot and arrested ISIS terrorist Sayfullo Saipov

The New York police officer who shot and apprehended the Islamic terrorist Sayfullo Saipov in Tuesday’s attack has been identified as Ryan Nash, working in NYPD’s 1st precinct, and joined the department in 2012.

Eight people were killed and almost a dozen injured before the extremist, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, crashed a Home Depot rental truck into a school bus. He then exited the vehicle allowing for Nash to shoot and apprehend the man.

Saipov shouted “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is greater!” and left a note in the truck, claiming allegiance to ISIS, the Islamic State.

Nash, 28, “confronted the subject and shot him in the abdomen,” Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said during a press conference. O’Neill was quick to praise Nash, who he said “stopped the carnage” in lower Manhattan.

“I want to commend the response of our NYPD officer that was on post near the location who stopped the carnage moments after it began,” he said.

He also praised the work of first responders, “including the Fire Department and the EMS personnel surely helped save additional lives.”

Saipov, an Uzbek national, was wounded and transported to a local hospital. He is now out of surgery.

The Argentine government identified five of the slain victims as Hernán Mendoza, Diego Angelini, Alejandro Pagnucco, Ariel Erlij and Hernan Ferruchi. These men were gathered in New York for a 30 year reunion.

An unidentified Belgian woman, 31, was struck while riding a bicycle died at the Lower Manhattan Hospital.
