New York City Terror Attack: Mariah Carey, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift Send Their Love

An incident that left 8 people dead and at least 11 injured when a man drove a vehicle onto a busy Manhattan bike path on Tuesday (Oct. 31) has been condemned by New York's Mayor as “a particularly cowardly act of terror.” The 29-year-old terror suspect was shot and arrested by police, the Associated Press reported, and later in the evening Pres.. Trump announced Homeland Security would tighten immigrant screening as a result, calling for "extreme vetting" to avoid future attacks.

The shocking incident on the cusp of New Yorkers flooding the city's streets for Halloween celebrations, drew dozens of heartfelt, emotional responses from musicians, actors and politicians who sent their love and support to the city that suffered its worst terror attack since 9/11. Josh Groban was among those in the area at the time of the attack. “I’m shaking,” he tweeted. “That’s the corner I was supposed to have my coffee but my dog pulled me into the park half a block away 10 min before shooting.”

As news of the violent crime spread across social media, musicians and celebrities condemned the pointless massacre.
