1 Dead, 5 Injured in London's Russell Square Knife Attack: Police

By 17:31:00

One woman is dead, and 5 injured after a man carrying a knife attacked people in London's Russell Square late Wednesday night, Metropolitan Police said.

"A man was arrested at 22:39 hours and a Taser was discharged by one of the arresting officers," police said in a statement.

The man is 19 years old, but his name was not released. At a press conference early Thursday morning, Metropolitan Police Asst. Commissioner Mark Rowley said, "This was a tragic incident resulting in the death of one woman and five others being injured. Early indications suggest that mental health was a factor in this horrific attack.

But Rowley said terrorism isn't being ruled out. "However we are keeping an open mind regarding the motive and terrorism remains one line of inquiry being explored," he said.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, "Police have spoken to him and are seeking to establish the full facts including motives for this attack."

Police officers and London Ambulance Service attended to the scene. Additional police units have been deployed to the area to "provide reassurance," police said.
