Multiple people were stabbed in London Sunday before police shot a man wielding a knife and wearing a suicide vest.

London, UK – Multiple people were stabbed in London on Sunday before police intervened in what Metropolitan police are calling a terrorist-related incident.

BBC reported that several people were stabbed on Streatham High Road on Feb. 2 before officers shot the armed suspect.

Witnesses reported hearing three gunshots when police intervened.

Videos filmed by bystanders showed officers running from the area and taking cover after they neutralized the suspect because he was wearing what appeared to be an explosive vest.

#INCIDENT 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. Please follow @metpoliceuk for updates,” the Metropolitan police tweeted.

There is no official information about the number of people who were wounded.

“We have a number of resources attending an incident in Streatham High Road,” the London Ambulance Service told The Guardian.

A 19-year-old student who saw the incident occur said that people took down the suspect in front of him.

“I was crossing the road when I saw a man with a machete and silver canisters on his chest being chased by what I assume was an undercover police officer - as they were in civilian clothing,” Gulled Bulhan told The Guardian. “The man was then shot. I think I heard three gun shots but I can’t quite remember.”

Police announced on Twitter that the suspect had died.

I wonder if "knife free zone" signs would stop this kind of attack? /sarc

If this were in America, the Libs would be crying and protesting. And some lawyer would be contacting the family to start work on their ghetto lottery! Because even though he's a terrorist, stabbed a bunch of people and resisted, the hug-a-thug liberals say we should have done more.

Uncontrolled immigration has led London along with much of Europe down a path where it once was a jewel of a city and somewhere people loved to visit and vacation to a toilet of rapes stabbings and cultural diversity.
But let's celebrate our differences while our children are raped our elderly are beaten and robbed and any time your out and about enjoying your beautiful city you could be stabbed or have acid thrown in your face.

I wonder if more federal knife control laws could have prevented this tragedy. /sarc

London terrorist shot dead after stabbing two people is named as Sudesh Amman, 19, who was freed just days ago after serving jail term for distributing extremist material

It's quite unusual for the UK media to identify terrorists so quickly. They usually say something like "believed to be mentally disturbed," (duh). I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the UK left the EU two days ago.

They welcomed the Muslims into England only to have them inhabit areas of London where they terrorized the residents enough so they moved out. Now even the police are afraid to go in there. Time to round them up and ship them back. Barbaric behavior towards those who wanted to help them. Shameful
