The Police Chief in Waukesha, Dan Thompson revealed to the press that a suspect has be held for questioning and the vehicle used for the dastardly act had being recovered.

It was unclear whether the incident has anything to do with an act of terrorism, but Thompson noted that there was no further risk and that a previous shelter-in-place order in the 72,000-person town had been withdrawn.

A cop fired bullets at the vehicle, according to Thompson, in an attempt to stop the mayhem. On social media, another video appeared to show police shooting on the truck as it slammed through street barriers. Thompson stated that, contrary to early accounts, police did not believe shots were fired from the vehicle.
