A public defender representing a man accused of driving a truck down a bike path near the World Trade Center and killing eight people says the man is in "a significant amount" of physical pain.

Police say an officer shot attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov on Tuesday to stop his rampage.

Federal defender David Patton on Wednesday asked a judge to make sure his client receives "a daily change of dressing to avoid infection." He wouldn't discuss the seriousness of the wound.

Saipov appeared in court in a wheelchair while handcuffed and with his legs shackled. He is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State terrorist group and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

He was ordered detained. His lawyers did not seek bail.

The FBI says it's no longer looking for a second man in connection with a deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.

The bureau on Wednesday issued a poster seeking the public's help with information about the man. But at a news conference later FBI Assistant Director in Charge Bill Sweeney said, "We've found him, and we'll leave it at that."

He didn't elaborate on why authorities were seeking the man, who was born in Uzbekistan.

Attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov also is from Uzbekistan. He's charged with providing material support to a terrorist group and violence and destruction of motor vehicles. Authorities say he drove the truck down the path intentionally, killing eight people, before police shot him.

He appeared in court in a wheelchair and was ordered detained. He didn't enter a plea. His lawyers didn't seek bail.

The FBI is looking for information on a second man in connection with a deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.

The bureau on Wednesday issued a poster saying it is seeking the public's help with information about 32-year-old Mukhammadzoir Kadirov. The poster doesn't say why investigators want to know more about the man.

The poster says he was born in Uzbekistan. So was 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, who was charged Wednesday with providing material support to a terrorist group and violence and destruction of motor vehicles. Authorities say he drove the truck down the path intentionally, killing eight people. Investigators recovered a cellphone that had Islamic State group propaganda.

Court documents say an Uzbek terror suspect accused of killing eight people on a bike path near the World Trade Center told officials he was inspired to carry out the truck attack by Islamic State group videos he watched on his cellphone.

Sayfullo Saipov was charged Wednesday with terrorism crimes. Calls to his attorneys haven't been returned.

A federal complaint says he told authorities he started planning a U.S. attack about a year ago and the truck attack two months ago. It says he rented a truck about a week before the attack to practice turns and chose Halloween for the attack because he thought there would be more civilians nearby.

The man is awaiting a court appearance. He was shot and wounded by police on Tuesday and remains hospitalized.

The White House says President Donald Trump has spoken with the New York City mayor and the New York governor following the deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders also says Trump's calls for increasing extreme vetting of immigrants are "something that frankly the president has been talking about for a long time." The man arrested following Tuesday's attack is from Uzbekistan.

Sanders was asked on Wednesday about Trump's critical tweets about New York Sen. Chuck Schumer. Sanders says the Republican president "has not blamed" the New York Democrat and "doesn't feel that the senator is responsible for the attack."

Police say eight people died in the attack. They say the truck driver mowed people down on the bike path and crashed into a school bus and then an officer shot and wounded him.

   3:50 p.m.

The White House says President Donald Trump's administration considers a truck driver who mowed down and killed people on a New York bike path to be an "enemy combatant."

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump is open to sending the attacker to the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Sanders says the actions of the attacker justify the enemy combatant label. She says Trump isn't calling on the attacker to be moved to Guantanamo Bay but "certainly would support it if he felt like that was the best move."

Tuesday's truck attack happened near the World Trade Center and killed eight people. Officials say the attacker was shot and wounded by police and has yet to be charged.

Sanders says the determination hasn't been made whether to move him out of the civilian justice system.
