At least 10 were killed and 15 others were injured when a white van plowed into several pedestrians in Toronto on Monday, police said.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said the crash, which occurred at 1:30 p.m. at a busy intersection, appeared to be an intentional act but the department has little information on the suspect and his possible motives.

“The actions definitely look deliberate,” Saunders said. “There’s nothing on our files. There’s nothing that we have on him right now.”

Toronto police identified the suspect as 25-year-old Alek Minassian.

The driver fled from the scene, but police located the vehicle several blocks away and arrested him.
