The FBI has reportedly located a second person of interest in connection with Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City that left eight dead.
Though the agency and the New York Police Department considered Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, a person of interest, WNBC reported that the Uzbek national isn’t listed as a suspect.
Authorities believe that he may have information about Tuesday’s incident, according to the local station.
“We have found him and we will leave it at that,” FBI assistant director Bill Sweeney said.
Update: Mukhammadzoir Kadirov has been located, we are still looking for any information the public may have on him, call: 1-800-CALL-FBI

Earlier today, however, the agency released an alert announcing that they were seeking information about Kadirov, 32, in connection with the attack. The announcement came around the same time police revealed that NYC terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov, 29, possibly had connections to individuals under investigation for terrorism, according to The New York Times.
The alert came a day after Saipov allegedly drove a rented Home Depot truck down a busy Manhattan bike path, killing eight. Saipov was wounded after crashing into a school bus and exiting the truck while wielding two imitation guns.
Though New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called Saipov a “lone actor,” the 29-year-old left a note in the truck which translated to “ISIS endures forever,” WNBC also reported.
While it’s unclear why they were looking for Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, the FBI is still seeking information about the 32-year-old. Anyone who knows anything about Kadirov is instructed to call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
