Speculation no second shooter or no second attacker, but police/SWAT uncertain of that yet. With 3 kinds of victims – gunshot wounds, knife wounds, and ran over by SUV, more than one attacker is more likely.

From live news conference: Attacker ran over pedestrians with SUV. Police reported shots fired. Attacker fired shots hitting 4 victims. Attacker then used a butcher knife on some victims. Cop then shot attacker, killing him. No second attacker. It is over. 9 people to hospitals, 1 critical.
However, reason for it and attacker ID not yet reported. Another news conference later today will report more. This will be updated here when those questions are answered – who and why…
12:20pm CT 1:20pm ET…
Now all sources backing off on claim of gun shots and gunshot victims. The claim now is some victims ran over with SUV and then other victims attacked with a butcher knife. No gun. Attacker refused to drop knife so copy shot and killed him. Still awaiting ID and reason why. However, terrorism is now being considered because of history of some terrorist attacking with vehicles and then using knives.
