Reports reaching us can confirm that the Berlin attack suspect has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan this morning.
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 Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan.
He is understood to have pulled a gun on a 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.
Sad way to end a beautiful life.
