Several People Stabbed In Terrorist Incident In South London, Attacker Dead

A man has been shot on a busy London street after reports at least one person was stabbed, reported BBC News.

The incident occurred in Streatham High Road around 2:30 PM and appeared to be a "terrorist-related" incident.

Metropolitan Police have tweeted, "A man has been shot by armed officers in #Streatham. 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."

The Daily Star said a witness on Twitter suggested a female "cyclist was stabbed in the back," as well as another person, but that is an unofficial report and has yet to be confirmed by authorities.

Others have said a man stabbed the cyclist with "a knife grabbed from a restaurant and police shot him" and the man fell to the ground.

The London Ambulance Service has since said three people were treated for injuries.

The shooting occurred in Streatham High Road at around 2.30pm and appears to have happened in front of a large crowd of people.

The incident comes two months after police in London shot a jihadist terrorist dead on London Bridge, after he stabbed two people to death. The murderer had a history of terror offenses and was described by a judge several years earlier as a “serious jihadi.” He was on parole at the time of his stabbing spree.
