British police on Sunday stated they’d shot a person in Streatham in south London after a number of individuals had been stabbed in a suspected “terrorist-related” incident.
“A man has been shot by armed officers in #Streatham,” London’s Metropolitan Police stated on Twitter.
“At this stage, it is believed a number of people have been stabbed.
“The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related.”
It was not instantly clear what situation the person and people stabbed had been in.
London’s Ambulance Service stated it had “a number of resources” attending the incident on Streatham High Road within the largely residential neighbourhood.
Unverified footage posted to social media purporting to seize a few of the incident confirmed armed cops surrounding a person mendacity on the bottom on Streatham High Road.
They then abruptly moved away, urging onlookers to maneuver again, as different emergency autos arrived on the scene.
Britain has seen a spate of terrorist assaults lately.
In the latest incident on November 29, 2019, convicted terrorist Usman Khan killed two individuals earlier than being shot useless by police on London Bridge.
