Witnesses reported seeing a man shot by armed officers.

British police shot a man on Friday after a number of people were stabbed in the London Bridge area of the city.

A video posted on Twitter shows a group of about half a dozen men wrestling with someone on the ground on the sidewalk of the bridge. One of them backs away from the scene carrying a knife.

As he looks back towards the melee, an armed police officer drags another person away from the man on the floor. Soon after, what sound like two gunshots ring out, and the man on the ground stops moving. Reuters could not immediately verify the footage.

"One man has been shot by police," police said. "As a precaution, we are currently responding to this incident as though it is terror-related," they added.
