Police said they have arrested Nathan Campbell, 38, on suspicion of murder for Saturday afternoon's horrific incident on the crowded Venice Beach boardwalk. Video caught a driver getting into his car and flooring it, speeding along the boardwalk and hitting numerous people. At least one person, a 32-year-old Italian woman reportedly on her honeymoon, has died. Eleven others were injured as the car plowed through the crowd as fast as 60 miles an hour, according to onlookers. The car was later found abandoned in Santa Monica and a suspect turned himself in to Santa Monica police. The LAPD announced Campbell's arrest this morning but gave no motive for the crime.
Good local coverage at Venice 311.
The Italian victim has been identified as Alice Gruppioni, the daughter of Valerio Gruppioni, described as an entrepreneur and former president of Bologna Football. This video compilation using footage from a restaurant camera appears to show the suspect deliberating — and possibly getting cold feet? — before speeding into the crowd.
