Police shot a man dead on a busy south London street on Sunday (February 2) after a stabbing attack that police called terrorism-related.
In video captured by an eyewitness at the scene, a police officer can be seen pointing a gun towards a seemingly lifeless body on the pavement. Police said the man they had shot had been pronounced dead.
Some witnesses said the man had been armed with a machete. One described him as wearing silver canisters on his chest.
The London ambulance service said three people were wounded and had been taken to hospital. They said one of the wounded was in a life-threatening condition.
Police said the scene of the incident was now fully contained. “The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related,” the police said on Twitter.
