and then holding what appeared to be two real-looking handguns. here is another look at that suspect. that 29-year-old man running around, frantically, on the west side highway after hitting and killing people on the bike path that runs along the hudson river. this played out in the middle of the afternoon. it was a beautiful fall day in an area that's very popular with tourists. there are several schools in this neighborhood. several were dismissing just as the attack was beginning. here's more from witnesses who watched in disbelief. >> it happened out of nowhere. i was walking down the street. a normal day. multiple gunshots, one after another. it was completely unexpected. >> reporter: the suspect, as was mentioned, used a rented truck from home depot to commit the killings. he stopped only after a member

this. you have ballards that stick out of the ground and large concrete potted plants and metal fences. while you'll find these here, you won't see these everywhere. that's why when we talk with philly police and a homeland security official, former official, their answer is awareness. police commissioner richard ross told us these truck attacks which have become more commonplace lately, it's another layer, one more thing that they have to keep in mind. because of that, we do see amped up security at major events, even garbage trucks around the city are used to block roadways. terrorism expert jack tamartia says total protection is almost impossible. if a person who hasn't been on the terrorism radar before, if he decides to attack, that's a big problem. >> it just did happen here. it happened 90 miles to the north, but it can happen if philadelphia. -- can happen in philadelphia. >> we have to be vigilant to what's going on in the world today. be really, really careful about
surroundings and how we go about doing the everyday things in life. >> reporter: the commissioner there says that his officers are being more watchful on the streets, as well, but it can only go so far. awareness is key. everyone has to play pay part. we'll talk more -- play a part. we'll talk more coming up. for now, live at independence mall, nbc10 news. >> thanks. president trump tweeted his condolences to the victims' families of the new york terrorist attack. he tweeted last night that he's ordered homeland security to step up the country's extreme vetting program. he added, "being politically correct is fine, but not for this." in another tweet the president called the suspect sick and deranged. he ended that tweet with "not in the usa." we have team coverage have from new york city all morning. you can use our nbc10 app to see more videos and pictures from witnesses and get instant alerts
