According to German media reports, today’s incident when the vehicle rammed into a crowd, killing one person and injuring at least twelve, was not accidental.

Berlin police have reportedly found a ‘confession letter’ in the crashed car, though the motives of the driver, who was identified by law-enforcement officials as the “German-Armenian, 29, who lives in Berlin,” still remain unclear, the reports say.

It appears that the suspect was previously known to the law enforcement officials in connection with some “property crimes.”

According to one German tabloid, one of the investigators said that the ramming was “definitely not an accident.” The investigator has also reportedly branded the man a “cold-blooded killer.”

Six out of twelve people hurt in the crash have received life-threatening injuries and three others are in serious condition
