Late Tuesday afternoon, a 29-year-old motorist in a rented pick-up truck drove into a popular bike path on New York City's West Side Highway, killing at least eight people and seriously injuring 11 others. The driver was shot and apprehended by police after crashing the truck and jumping out with what were later found to be fake guns in both hands. Here's what we know:
New York City's always-surreal Halloween parade marched on Tuesday evening under the shadow of real fear, hours after the truck attack.
In response to the deadly attack, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross asked city residents to remain alert and report suspicious activity.

Gloucester County Christian School officials are investigating an incident in which a black student found two notes with a racial slur on his locker. The culprit has yet to be identified. In the meantime, the predominantly white student body is receiving lessons on race relations and sermons on how to treat each other.
The mother of the student alerted the NAACP last week after the second note was found on her son's locker in mid-October. After meeting with the school, the student's parents removed the student and a sibling from the school. The chapter president of the NAACP's Camden County East Branch said the organization is also investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
