The horrifying incident went down Thursday afternoon near the popular tourist area of Las Ramblas. Dozens of people are injured in what police are calling a “massive trampling” after the van mounted the sidewalk. Video taken at the scene shows bodies littered across the pavement. There’s also at least one armed man reportedly holed up in a nearby restaurant.
The harrowing event comes on the heels of last week’s Charlottesville attack … where a white nationalist plowed through a crowd in a Dodge Challenger, killing 1.
