The latest from London, a very strange report from AP, with thanks to CGiddensJr:
LONDON – Police in London shot a man wearing a thick coat at a subway station and cordoned off a mosque on Friday, a day after the city was hit by a second wave of terror attacks in two weeks.
Police had no immediate details on the situation at the mosque in east London. But a Muslim leader said it was evacuated following a bomb threat.
The circumstances of the shooting at Stockwell station were not immediately clear, nor was the man’s condition. One witness said he was dead.
British Transport Police said the Northern and Victoria Tube lines, which pass through Stockwell, were suspended because of shooting.
Passengers said they saw police pursuing a man who appeared to be of Pakistani or Indian descent. Some said police shot him when he tripped.
But one witness told the British Broadcasting Corp. that police “pushed him onto the floor and unloaded five shots into him.”
“He looked like a cornered fox. He looked pertrified,” Mark Whitby said, adding that the man appeared to be dead.
Whitby said the man did not appear to be carrying anything but was wearing a thick coat that looked padded.
Another witness said there were at least 20 police officers involved in the chase.
