UK police say they have shot man in south London in terrorism-related incident

Police shot a man in south London on Sunday after several people were believed to have been stabbed in what police described as a terrorism-related incident.

“A man has been shot by armed officers in Streatham (south London). 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 police said on Twitter.

Police said people should avoid the area.

The last such incident in London was in November, when police shot dead a man wearing a fake suicide vest who stabbed two people to death and wounded three more before being wrestled to the ground by bystanders. Authorities called that a terrorist attack.
