CNN has the initial reports.
“This whole incident was started by a deranged individual who was suicidal,” said Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams.
The suspect, identified as Juan Manuel Alvarez, 26, got out of the vehicle before impact and watched the collision, Adams said.
Alvarez of Compton, California, is in custody and is expected to be charged with homicide, Adams said.
This one quickly turned into an area wide “all-hands”. Reports suggest the NTSB is working this one now, as would be expected.
The reports are suggesting that this was not an act of terrorism. Likekly true. But it’s a good question to ask. It also seems to make sense to question if such attacks would be attempted; seems to me if you’re an Arab terrorist trying to make a statement….. Hmmmm. I’ll let that one go, for the moment.
