Manhunt in Spain for terror suspects; American among victims

- A manhunt is underway in Spain for at least one terrorism suspect still on the run. He is believed to be part of a Morocco-based terror cell. ISIS claimed responsibility for the carnage in Barcelona.

A couple from California celebrating their first wedding anniversary together was on a delayed honeymoon in Barcelona. Jared Tucker and his wife Heidi were visiting Las Ramblas when a white van came barreling down the street and ran over innocent people in a murderous terror attack on a peaceful Thursday afternoon.

"They showed them some pictures, some of the people that were killed during the attack, and they recognized one of the pictures as Jared," said Daniel Tucker, Jared's father. "We got a text that she had been taken to wherever the body was and she literally confirmed then that that was Jared."

Tucker, 43, leaves behind three children.

The victims in the Barcelona attack come from two dozen countries.

In a flash, lives changed forever. Surveillance video captured the moment the van came speeding down Las Ramblas. A woman with a stroller cheated death by seconds.

But the bloodshed didn't stop in Barcelona.

Eight hours later, a second car attack in the seaside resort of Cambrils killed a woman and hurt a handful of others.

Police shot dead five men wearing fake suicide vests. Among them was the driver of the van in the Barcelona attack. Authorities identified him as Moussa Oukabir, 17, of Morocco. So far, Spanish authorities have arrested four men.

Police also tied the dual attacks to a deadly explosion about 100 miles away from Barcelona on Wednesday believed to be part of a larger failed plot to bomb tourists and civilians.
