Seven people have been killed and 48 injured in a terror attack in central London in an attack that happened late Saturday night, with police shooting three suspects dead.
This is happening exactly two weeks after the attack at the Ariana Grande concert terror attack. According to a statement by Metropolitan police assistant commissioner for specialist operations, Mark Rowley, the attackers started with a white van which struck pedestrians on London Bridge, then they later came down to stab quite a number of peopleThe suspects then left the vehicle and “a number of people were stabbed, including an on-duty British Transport Police officer who was responding to the incident at London Bridge,” said Rowley. The officer received serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Armed officers responded very quickly and bravely, confronting three male suspects who were shot and killed in Borough Market. The suspects had been confronted and shot by the police within eight minutes of the first call. The suspects were wearing what looked like explosive vests but these were later established to be hoaxes.
