The driver has been named as Greek Australian Dimitrious Gargasoulas, 26
Dimitrious Gargasoulas has been named as the man police believe is responsible for deliberately driving a maroon coloured Holden car into the crowd in Bourke Street and Queen's Street in the city centre.
These are the first pictures of the 26-year-old suspect just before he was seen ploughing into shoppers and lunchtime workers, killing three, including a man and a woman in their 30s and a young child.
At least 25 people are thought to have been injured.
The suspect, who was known to police, can be seen hanging out of the car's window as he appears to be screaming at pedestrians, moments before he drove into the pedestrianised shopping area.
This is breaking news.
