One person is dead and at least two more wounded following a terrorist attack in London Sunday afternoon.
The incident occurred on Streatham High Street Sunday afternoon when, according to eyewitnesses, several people were stabbed and at least one person shot.
Police later said that the incident was “terror-related”, adding that the person who had been shot was wounded by officers, and appears to be the suspect.
“The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related,” London Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
The other wounded were stabbed, though police declined to list the number of victims.
Witnesses said that ambulances and helicopters had been dispatched to the scene of the stabbing.
“I was walking to the shops and saw helicopters came down, and lots of ambulances,” said Alanah Murphy, according to the BBC.
“I didn’t see what happened but just the aftermath – loads of armed police and like nine, 10 ambulances. The police were screaming at people to get back.”
Another witness claimed that the terrorist stabbed a female cyclist and a second victim, before being shot and neutralized.
