A little over a month ago, the country was rocked by an attack at a concert in Las Vegas, killing almost 60 people and injuring 500 more.  Recently the country was reminded of this nightmare, this time much closer to the DelMarVa area.  At 3:05 P.M., 29-year old Sayfullo Saipov drove a Home Depot rental truck down a bike lane, killing 8 pedestrians and injuring 12 more.  The attack occurred in lower Manhattan.  The bike only lane was put in place to influence more bike riders and reduce car usage.  Saipov crashed his car, shortly before exiting out of the car, yelling “Allahu Akbar.”

Saipov’s spree ended shortly after leaving the car, having been shot by the cops after being seen with two guns.  “I go to New York all the time it’s sad.  It really is” said Mrs. Springfield.  Saipov had a normal life in the U.S. for a while.  He soon discovered a video from ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi asking for “lone-wolf attacks” to be carried out in the U.S. for revenge for Muslim deaths in the Middle East.  “I think it’s wrong what that man did” Junior Bennett Crawford said.

The attack is less than a month after a lone gunman shot at a country concert in Las Vegas.  “They happened so close together, the might be connect together,” Freshman Gabriel Da Silva said.  With Las Vegas happening shortly before this attack, the nation is left to mourn yet another group of innocent men and women left to die by an evil individual.  Saipov is in court and is currently under trial for multiple counts of murder, a fitting charge for a cold blooded killer.
