Cop Who Shot NYC Terror Suspect: 'We Were Just Doing Our Job'

Posted by Melinda Rosati | Nov 02, 2017 | 0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY — NYPD Officer Ryan Nash said he and his fellow cops were "just doing our job" when they responded to the scene of Tuesday's terror attack on a Hudson River bike path.

But for Nash, 28, doing his job made him a hero.

It was Nash, a five-year veteran of Lower Manhattan's 1st Precinct, who shot suspected attacker Sayfullo Saipov in the stomach. That ended Saipov's Islamic State-inspired spree of violence that killed eight people and injured a dozen — the deadliest terror attack in New York since 9/11.

"Although I feel that we were just doing our job, like thousands of officers do every day, I understand the importance of yesterday's events and the role we played, and I am grateful for the recognition we have received," Nash said at a news conference Wednesday, making his first public statement since the attack.
