- He then travelled to Sesto San Giovanni – a northern suburb of the city
- At 3am local time, Italian police approached Amri outside the train station after he looked suspicious
- Amri was requested to provide ID – but he failed to do so
- Police then asked him to empty his pockets and small backpack
- But Amri pulled out a loaded gun and shot at one of the policemen
- The lightly wounded officer was shot in the shoulder
- Amri then hid behind a car, but a police officer – who moved behind the vehicle – shot him once or twice
- The suspect died on the spot
According to senior police officer Roberto Guida, Anis Amir hid behind the car to be able to shoot at the police again, and possibly kill them.
He said Amri was identified by his finger prints.
