Officials on Monday night arrested the suspect in a motor vehicle crash at an Apple store in Hingham, Massachusetts, that killed at least one person and injured 16 others, according to local authorities.

The latest: Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said Tuesday that police obtained an arrest warrant charging Bradley Rein, 53, with reckless homicide by motor vehicle.

  • Rein will be arraigned in Hingham District Court, Cruz said.

State of play: The person who died was been identified as 65-year-old Kevin Bradley of New Jersey, per law enforcement.

  • "We are devastated by the shocking events at Apple Derby Street today and the tragic loss of a professional who was onsite supporting recent construction at the store," Apple said in a statement.
  • "Our hearts go out to our team members and customers who were injured and all of those who were affected by this terrible incident. We are doing everything we can to support our team members and customers at this very difficult time."

What they're saying: A preliminary investigation found that the suspect crashed a 2019 Toyota 4Runner through the store's front glass, according to an update from law enforcement Monday afternoon.

  • "A dark-colored SUV appears, went through at a rate of speed undetermined, through a … glass window and struck multiple people," Cruz said at the news conference.
  • Cruz added that family members were "being notified or in the process of being notified," adding that store employees and other nearby workers were "visibly shaken, and they're assembling nearby."
  • "When you're just going there to buy a phone or get something fixed or whatever it may be — it's absolutely unthinkable. It's absolutely tragic," Cruz added.

Of note: A notice posted on the Hingham Apple store's website said it would be closed until further notice.
