LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police have arrested a man on suspicion of intentionally driving into crowds at the Venice Beach boardwalk, killing a woman and injuring 11 others.

Police say 38-year-old Nathan Campbell has been booked for investigation of murder and remains jailed Sunday on $1 million bail.

He turned himself about two hours after the attack that occurred at around 6 p.m. Saturday. Investigators don't yet have a motive.

Witnesses reported a horrendous scene of people scattered and bloody in the popular tourist area.

A coroner's investigator tells City News Service that the dead woman is 32-year-old Alice Gruppioni of Italy.

Police say another victim was critically hurt, two were in serious condition and others were treated for less serious injuries.
