The Berlin Truck Terrorist has been killed in Milan, Italy after a shootout early Friday morning, according to multiple reports and the Daily Mail UK.

Anis Amri, a 24 year old Tunisian man, was inarguably the most wanted person in Europe after driving a truck through a crowd, killing 12 and injuring many more at a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday.

The Daily Mail reports that on Friday, in a suburb of Milan around 3 AM local time, Amri was stopped by police after exiting a train and asked for identification. It was at that moment when he reportedly pulled a gun from his backpack, screamed “Allah Akbar” and began to fire at the officers. He struck one of the officers in the shoulder before he was ultimately shot and killed. The officer who returned fire was a trainee, having only been on the job a few months.

Some time after Amri’s death, a suicide video emerged, released by an ISIS-linked news agency, in which he pledged himself to the Islamic State (ISIS), and can be heard saying that he would, “punish pig-eaters.”

ISIS has since confirmed Amri’s death, and his responsibility of the actions at the Christmas market in Berlin on Monday.

Security chiefs believe Amri, who used at least six different aliases with three nationalities, was trying to flee to southern Italy where he had entered Europe illegally in 2011, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail continued their report, saying that police found a train ticket that helped reconstruct the attacker’s movements in Berlin, revealing how he took a train from Chambery in France and then from Turin to Milan. It is not clear whether he had driven from Berlin to Chambery or taken a 1,000-mile train trip all the way to Milan via Frankfurt – the normal rail route to the south of France.

WARNING: VIDEO AND IMAGES MAY CONTAIN GRAPHIC IMAGES

Jenan Moussa, a reporter for Al Aan TV, provided a translation for Amri’s video, explaining his words as having said he “isn’t a lone wolf after all – at least he was in touch with ISIS media.”

My message to the crusaders who bomb Muslims everyday, in the name of God we come to slaughter you pigs.

You think you can bomb the monotheists. They have an Umma behind them and we will avenge their spilled blood.

I call my brothers everywhere, make Jihad in the name of God and support this religions [duty]. Each up to his ability.

If you can fight, then fight. If you are in Europe fight these crusade pigs. Each person up to his ability.

If (infidels) got power in sky let it fall. If power is in sea let it sink. If power is in air make it spoils for Muslims.

God please give me strength against these crusade infidels.

Both Breitbart and Reuters have corroborated some of what Moussa translated.
