Police in London fatally shot a man Sunday after multiple people were stabbed in a “terrorist-related” incident, Metropolitan Police said.

The attack took place in Streatham, a town in the London suburbs. 

“At this stage it is believed a number of people have been stabbed,” police said on Twitter. “The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related.”

Minutes later, police tweeted that there were two injured victims.

Witnesses on social media said they heard three gunshots fired just after 2 p.m. local time, the BBC reported. At least some of the victims were being treated by physicians at the scene, the BBC said.

Gulled Bulhan, 19, told Metro News he saw a man with a machete running from someone Bulhan believed was an undercover police officer. 

“The man was then shot,” he said. “I think I heard three gunshots, but I can’t quite remember.”
