Berlin truck attack suspect shot dead in Milan

Shot dead
The Berlin attack suspect has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan this morning, Italian police have said. A major international manhunt had been launched for Anis Amri who is
suspected of ploughing a lorry into crowds of revellers in the German capital on Monday night, killing 12 and maiming dozens of others.
 An Italian security source has now revealed the suspect has been shot dead in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan.
He is understood to have pulled a gun on a police patrol after being stopped for a routine ID check and shot an officer in the shoulder leaving him seriously injured.

A shoot out then took place at about 3am local time and he was reportedly heard shouting 'Allahu Akbar' as he tried to flee and police opened fire.

Police saw a man in his twenties, of North African appearance, outside the deserted Sesto San Giovanni station in the north of the city at 3am.

When the patrol approached him, he pulled a weapon from his backpack and shot a policeman in the shoulder, according to Corriere della Sera.

The suspect, who Italian sources believe was Europe’s most wanted man Anis, tried to run but he was shot dead in the road.
