-- Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, the 31-year-old man identified as the driver behind the deadly attack in Nice, France, drove 1.2 miles along a seafront promenade Thursday night as crowds were gathered to watch fireworks for Bastille Day.
The 19-ton refrigerated truck Bouhlel used to kill dozens of people and injure hundreds more was rented on Monday, but wasn't pick up until 9:45 p.m. Thursday night. Bouhlel arrived alone on bicycle, then drove west to the city.
Security cameras show the truck at 10:30 p.m. driving toward the Promenade des Anglais, and at 10:45 p.m., Bouhlel turned onto the promenade, driving for a little over a mile as he mowed down bystanders.
Bouhlel fired shots from the truck multiple times, striking three police officers around the Negresco Hotel. Police returned fire, but the truck managed to drive another 300 meters before the driver stopped. He was then shot and killed by police.
The driver was found dead in the truck's passenger seat. In the truck, authorities found the bicycle he rode to the rental agency on, some empty pallets, the automatic pistol he used to shoot from the truck and ammunition. Also found were four fake guns, a malfunctioning grenade, a mobile phone, a driver's license and a bank card.
Eighty-four people were killed in the attack and 202 were injured.
