According to the Washington Post, Kadirov and his attorney are cooperating with law enforcement in New Jersey.

The announcement comes a day after another Uzbek native, Sayfullo Saipov, was shot by police after allegedly using a rented moving truck to mow down a group of people on a bike path in New York City.

Both Saipov and Kadirov are from Uzbekistan, a country in Central Asia that formerly was part of the Soviet Union.

The FBI says it has found Uzbekistan-born Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

At least eight people were killed and 11 other injured in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday after a gunman in a truck plowed through a busy bike path, an incident the U.S. termed as an "act of terrorism".

The man the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was seeking as a person of interest in the NY truck attack has condemned the plot and says it was "not from our religion".

He was slated to be arraigned on terrorism charges Wednesday night.

In addition to killing eight people, Saipov injured 13 others. The attack was planned weeks in advance and carried out in the name of ISIS, John Miller, deputy of NYPD counter-intelligence, said during a news conference Wednesday. Anyone with information concerning the case is urged to contact the FBI's Toll-Free Tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
