Authorities reported that a man matching the description of Anis Amri, a 24 year-old Tunisian, suspected of driving a truck through a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 and wounding 48, was killed in a shootout with police in Milan, Italy.

Ansa news, an Italian news service, reported that the during a routine security check, the man was asked for his identification papers outside of the Sesto San Giovanni train station at 3 AM. He pulled a gun from his backpack and was shot by police. A policeman was injured in the encounter.

Amri’s identification papers were found under the driver’s seat of the truck after the attack. The original driver of the truck was found inside the cab, dead of a gunshot wound. It is believed that Amri dropped his ID papers during the struggle with the driver.

Amri left Tunisia about seven years ago, arriving in Italy among a group of Syrian refugees. Security sources in Tunisia believe he was incarcerated in Italy for several years after burning down a school. He applied for asylum in Germany, but  his asylum request was rejected  in June this year. Authorities  were unable to deport him as Amri claimed to have no travel documents.
