Terror attack suspect killed; 2 victims dead

London’s Metropolitan police said Friday that an officer shot and killed a man wearing a fake explosive device following a stabbing incident near London Bridge that left two people dead.

Three other victims were reported in serious condition in the knife attack that police officials called a “terrorist incident.”

Health officials said one of the injured was in critical but stable condition, one was stable and the third had less serious injuries.

Neil Basu, an assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said 28-year-old Usman Khan was attending a program that works to educate prisoners when he launched the attack, killing a man and a woman and injuring three others just yards from the site of a deadly 2017 van and knife rampage. Basu said the suspect appeared to be wearing a bomb vest but it turned out to be “a hoax explosive device.”
