NYPD Officer Who Shot NYC Terror Attack Suspect Hailed As Hero

Sources told CBS New York that's when Officer Nash shot Saipov one time in the abdomen.

Nash was at the high school where the girl was located when the call came in that someone drove a truck onto a crowded Manhattan bicycle path, the Daily News reported.

Hasiotis and two other officers, Michael Welsome and Kevin McGinn, secured the area, took witness statements and grabbed the guns. Saipov, who police say is responsible for the attack, was brandishing two weapons, which turned out to be a pellet gun and paintball gun. After he fired nine shots, Nash was taken to the hospital for ringing in his ears but was otherwise uninjured.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, who said he had spoken to Nash since the attack, praised the officer for his bravery and humility. "And the NYPD is not just the leadership, it's the men and women who are out there every day who are on the first line, and I think officer Nash really showed how important they are and how talented and how courageous".

He followed "almost exactly to a T the instructions that ISIS has put out on social media about how to carry out such an attack", John Miller, deputy commission of NYPD counter-intelligence, said. Neighbors said he moved in sometime in the past year and largely kept to himself, though he often jogged outside. But Nash didn't know that when he confronted the suspect, O'Neill said.

He lives in Medford, Long Island with his girlfriend and has two awards for Excellent Police Duty and one for Meritorious Police Duty from the NYPD. "We have first responders who are heroes".

Officer Ryan Nash, 28, assigned to Lower Manhattan's 1st Precinct, was responding to a call of a nonviolent, emotionally disturbed person outside Stuyvesant High School.

"All New Yorkers should be thankful to Ryan and his partner". "I think Officer Nash showed how important (patrol officers) are, and how talented they are and how fearless".

Gov. Andrew Cuomo commended Nash on Wednesday, saying it's not just leadership from the top of the NYPD that keeps us safe, but the work of each officer.
