Not sure yet, they are downplaying the story. Check out this picture. Initial reports of a shooting first, then she plows into the crowd.

Yes DK, there were reports of a shooting first. They are totally downplaying that part of the story.

The news people are saying, this is a terrorist tactic used in the Middle East, plow a car into a mob. The police are not commenting on a motive.
