On Wednesday a man stabbed a police officer to death and ran over others in a car, killing 3 others and wounding at least 40 people in what authorities are labeling a “Islamist-related incident”. The man was shot and killed by police to put a stop to the incident. The stabbing of the police officer took place right outside parliament. A minister of parliament was seen providing CPR to the officer. It is still possible the number dead may rise due to the severity of the injuries.
After the suspect stabbed the officer they then ran over police officers and civilians on the popular Westminster Bridge. Police are still actively investigating the incident to determine the cause behind the attack. The actor was known to authorities.
