    The attacker was under active police surveillance at the time of the incident, which police described as "terrorist-related".

    Three people were injured, with one person in a life-threatening condition.

    Gunshots were heard on Streatham High Road just after 14:00 GMT on Sunday. Reports suggest a man entered a shop and started stabbing people.

    It appears he then left the shop and stabbed a woman, possibly a cyclist.

    Witnesses reported hearing three gun shots and a man was seen lying on the floor, as armed police approached.

      Dave Chawner said he was heading to the cinema when he saw what he thought was a shoplifter running down the street in Streatham and bump into someone before they fell to the ground and then got up again.

      He then heard shouting and what he thought was a car backfiring, followed by "two minor explosions".

      He said he didn’t assume these were gunshots until he saw two police officers pointing a gun at an assailant.

      Mr Chawner said the police were "incredible" and "competent", "highly-skilled" and "incredibly good" at dealing with the situation.

        Terrorists using knives seems to be becoming standard.
        He seems to have been wearing some sort of vest. Not sure whether it was real or fake as yet.

          Interesting area forward the event. Streatham is a fairly rough area of South London. A long way from high profile targets like the Houses of Parliament.
          It has been confirmed as Islamic terrorism.

            Looks like the terrorist had been presviously been convicted of terrorist offences and released early.

            Boris is right to toughen up sentencing. Unfortunately it is difficult to do retrospectively.

              Unfortunately my lovely neighborhood countries again. Sudesh Amman the slain terrorist was from Sri Lanka.

              He has extended family in Sri Lanka.

              I believe Indian Investigating teams must be on his trail in South Asia.

              Probably taught by Wahabi / Deobandi Jammatis from South Asia. Same groups who has done the Easter Bombings in Sri Lanka.

                Seems to be the new SOP for terrorists. The previous attacker was also wearing a fake suicide vest. Supposedly, this tactic compels the police to kill the assailants and thereby make martyrs of them.
