London is having more than it’s share. In the aftermath of searching for suspects involved in yesterday’s subway blasts, police in London “shot and killed a man wearing a thick coat at a London subway station.”
The man died after being shot by officers at the Stockwell subway station in south London, police said.
Passengers said a man, described as South Asian, ran onto a train at Stockwell station in south London. Witnesses said plainclothes police chased him, he tripped, and police then shot him.
“They pushed him onto the floor and unloaded five shots into him. He’s dead,” witness Mark Whitby told the British Broadcasting Corp. “He looked like a cornered fox. He looked petrified.”
London morning newspapers reflect the “city’s volatile mood — part defiance, part anxiety.”
“Britain will not be beaten,” vowed a front-page headline in the Daily Express. “Is this how we must now live?” asked the Daily Mirror over pictures of the attacks’ aftermath. The Independent had a similar photo montage and the words: “City of Fear.”
