Barcelona Terrorist Reportedly Shot Down

After a massive manhunt, authorities have reportedly shot down the terrorist who drove a vehicle into a crowd in Barcelona, Spain's Las Ramblas district last week. The suspect was caught wearing an explosive belt west of Barcelona and had been shouting, "Allahu Akbar."

The suspect has been ID'd as Younes Abouyaaquoub, a 22-year-old Moroccan.

The number of fatalities in last week's terror attacks in Barcelona have risen to 15. A few of the victims were just children and one victim was an American citizen.

UPDATE (12:41 p.m.): Spanish police have confirmed the suspect has been killed.
