The man accused of driving a truck through a bike lane in downtown New York City on Halloween was indicted in federal court Tuesday, reports Fox News.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was indicted in Manhattan on 22 counts, ranging from terrorism to both murder and attempted murder in aid of racketeering in connection to the Oct. 31 terror attack, which left eight people dead and 12 wounded.

The indictment includes charges that Saipov provided material support to the Islamic State, and also includes a number of offenses that could carry the death penalty upon conviction.

“Sayfullo Saipov murdered eight innocent people and injured many more in a calculated act of terrorism in the heart of one of our great cities,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday.
