British news organizations reported that a van plowed into pedestrians on the bridge in central London late Saturday evening.

"Rapid gunfire" was heard in the London Bridge area as armed police are thought to have shot shot dead two of the men, with a search underway for the third man.

The Daily Mail reports that at least seven people are believed to have been stabbed while eyewitnesses said bodies were "strewn" on the road.
