Federal Bureau of Investigation questioning second man

This is the deadliest terror attack on New York City since September 11, 2001.

About an hour after it was released, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and NYPD located Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, an Uzbek national.

The FBI and NYPD say that Mukhammadzoir Kadirov is a person of interest in the case.

"Earlier as we came in this evening, we were seeking information about an individual", Sweeney said.

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

With Sprint T-Mobile Merger Called Off, What's Next?
T-Mobile may need a little self-confidence boost, because it looks like Sprint is leaving it at the altar. USA regulators' concerns thwarted the companies' previous deal effort in 2014.

It's not immediately clear why authorities were looking for Kadirov, but they're still seeking information from the public on the man.

On Thursday, Kadirov released a statement to The Associated Press through a source in touch with his family. Kadirov is being questioned by authorities now; investigators became suspicious of him because Kadirov "went off the radar" when they went to talk to him following Tuesday's attack. He is from the same country of origin (Uzbekistan) as the terror suspect, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov.

Authorities said Saipov had been planning the attack for a "number of weeks" and did it "in the name of ISIS".

He's been charged with providing material support to Islamic State, and violence and destruction of a motor vehicle with willful disregard for human life - which carries the death penalty.
