The entire story is sketchy but what we think we know is this:
Earlier today, a man with a knife began attacking pedestrians on London Bridge. Right now there is a report of five persons being injured. The attacker is dead.
Here are some scenes of the panic as the attack kicked off and armed police began converging on the scene

Not everyone ran. Two (at least that’s the number being used now) passersby jumped the attacker, wrestled him to the ground, and disarmed him. Armed police hauled them aside and shot the attacker.
This is the actual shooting:

British press are saying the police are treating the attack as though it were “terror related.” Really.
